You are right Meghan, there are a lot of opportunities to expand and scale once we have our pilot with defibs up and running.

Open Data refers to publically available data that can be used for (nearly)any purpose. Many cities and governments are releasing 'open data' to allow for innovation and transparency.

What is "Open Data"?
Comment by Meghan UX on March 24, 2013 at 11:43am
Wow! How useful! And an idea that could expand too - defibrillators, oxygen, eyewash stations, backboards, qualified first aid, and more...

Hi Meghan,

I'm in Ottawa, and I'm currently working with a couple of people on building an app that crowdsources the location of all public access defibrillators in Ottawa. We're using gamification to incentivize players to contribute to our defibrillator listings, and to help annotate existing listings.

Here is my blog post from the start of the project, I'll be publishing an update shortly, because we've come a long way.

If you're interested shoot me an email and we can discuss health gamification in more detail.

Is anything being done to gameify healthcare in Canada?
