US Fed has Open Data Initiatives, Too

I found a link on Twitter to this image and a related presentation (below) about the US government adopting open data principles in Health and Human Services. Done properly, this could herald a number of new ideas, businesses and innovations in healthcare that are going to be needed to deal with the challenges over the next 20 years.

Watch the presentation video. Very cool stuff!!
