The Atlantic Health Datapalooza is a competition that helps people get excited about data science in health and its potential to support inquiry-based learning and problem solving with data. The Atlantic Health Datapalooza Competition involves inter-professional teams tackling the real-world problem of Patient Flow.

How it works: Teams will be briefed on the Patient Flow theme and supplied with the relevant data set(s). Teams will each have the same goal and requirements to fulfill certain tasks. The Teams will use various approaches to data, analysis, and visualization bringing unique, multi-disciplinary insights to each problem.
