On the Wednesday, May 15th 2013 broadcast at 10AM Pacific/1PM Eastern we chat with the principal organizers of the collaborative Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) and National Cancer Institute (NCI) application developer challenge.

Assisted by Health 2.0 Challenge Program and powered by the Medstartr crowdfunding and challenge optimization platform, Crowds Care for Cancer is further detailed in: 'New Developer Contest – Create a Cancer Survivor Tool' and via 'Crowds Care for Cancer: Supporting Survivors'.

Joining us from the Office of the National Coordinator for HealthIT (ONC) is Adam Wong, a Management and Program Analyst and Project Officer for the Inventing Innovation Program, and Abdul Shaikh, PhD, Program Director, Health Communications and Informatics, National Cancer Institute (NCI).

The challenge is the latest in an ongoing series of public/private collaboration and partnerships designed to stimulate innovation in the healthcare and healthtech space while energizing a full court press towards both the meaningful use of electronic connectivity as well as the broader cast 'triple aim'.

Join my HIBC.tv co-founder colleagues Alex Fair, Medstartr and Pat Salber HealthTech Hatch for an informative chat with the principal program drivers the 'Crowds Care for Cancer Supporting Survivors' Challenge.
