Calling All Digital Health Companies in Chicago!

Redox is hosting an exclusive hackathon at Matter on June 23rd!

If you’ve ever been asked “how does your product integrate with [insert EHR]” or wished you could demo your product receiving data from and EHR (and sending it back in), read on.

The goal?

To build true end-to-end integrated demos of your healthcare product or solution to help strengthen your sales efforts.


For too long, health-tech startups have been unable to show prospective customers what their solution interacting with and using data from an EHR. We’re out to fix that once and for all.


Thanks to the good folks at Allscripts and drchrono, we’ve gained access to sandbox EHR instances. Using our Redox Developer Tools and these environments, our application partners can finally demo the full scope of their integrated workflows.

Our plan is to host a one-day hackathon at MATTER (shoutout to them for all of their help!) with two sessions—one in the morning and one in the afternoon. During the morning session, we’ll teach a class on “how to sell integration” and spend the afternoon doing the development to get demos live.

Redox staff will be on hand to help coach developers through the steps required to build out a product demo using Redox’s developer tools and one of the available sandbox EHRs.

At the end of the day, you’ll have done the work required to integrate with any health system using Redox as well as have the ability to demo an end-to-end workflow with an actual EHR.


Here’s how you can get involved.

  • Step 1: Apply!

    • Unfortunately, we don’t have the space or resources to open this up to everyone. We are going to have to keep the initial group manageable to make sure we can provide appropriate support. If you’re interested, let us know sooner than later—spots are available on a first come, first serve basis.

    • Apply Now! (Deadline passed)

    • Application deadline: May 17th, 2017.

  • Step 2: Wait with bated breath.

    • Just kidding—we’ll get back to everyone pretty quickly after you apply. If selected, we’ll confirm your interest and then outline the next steps leading up to the event.


Not for you?

If you’re still reading this but don’t think it’s a good fit, maybe you know someone who might benefit from attending. If that’s the case, encourage them to apply! This event is open to any digital health application and we’d love for you to share this hackathon with other health tech innovators.



If you have any questions, give me a shout at I’m here (and happy) to help!
