Electronic Health Startup Iodine Gets FDA Nod in Data Sharing Project – west coast firms wins this strategic contract

Electronic Health Startup Iodine Gets FDA Nod in Data Sharing Project –- January 29, 2015, By Amy Schatz, Re/Code

San Francisco-based startup Iodine has won a $1.2 million contract to help the Food and Drug Administration expand its open-data program, called openFDA, as part of the Obama administration’s efforts to make government data more accessible to developers. The openFDA project is a relatively small contract by federal government standards, but it represents an important part of the White House’s continuing efforts to share more government data with developers and startups…

G2X TAKE: At $1.2 million, this is small in comparison to most contracts, but it is certainly a strategic contract in terms of supporting the open government initiative driven by this administration. With an influx of west coast talent as a result of 18F, you can expect this to be a trend in the coming years. “The new contract will allow Iodine to beef up the existing site and do more to help developers use the data that’s continuing to be posted”, said Iodine chief executive and co-founder Thomas Goetz, a former executive editor of Wired magazine.
