Open Health Knowledge Graphs
George Thomas, Enterprise Architect, Office of the Chief Information Officer (CIO), U.S. Department of Health & Human Services
This session introduces the business value of Linked Data, demonstrating how Linked Data enables the network effect through a process of ‘collaboration without coordination,’ resulting in the integration of information systems across disparate open government data publishers. This session will describe healthdata.gov platform components, including new functionality that programmatically exposes tabular and graph-oriented data. We will set the context for follow-up sessions that review recent winning submissions for developer challenges and a final panel discussion about technical opportunities and upcoming developer challenges contributing to the maturation of healthdata.gov as a useful knowledge graph.
