WORKSHOP: Saving Lives Bit By Bit with Public Health APIs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) is an independent global health research center at the University of Washington that provides rigorous and comparable measurement of the world's most important health problems and evaluates the strategies used to address them. The data produced by IHME is focused on helping citizens have longer and fuller lives. Unfortunately, most of this data is not programmatically accessible. In the last few months, the team has focused on creating micro services that expose data and infrastructure internally and externally. In this talk, I will present the vision, the current journey and publicly demo our API for the first time.
