For those planning health-related projects in the upcoming NDOCH...
I've been working with the federal CDC and FDA, to raise awareness of their many health related open data resources. I've also been part of the Code for San Francisco Health Project team for the past year.
As a result of this work, I've compiled a Google spreadsheet enumerating a wide array of great health related data/content resources--at the SF, California, and Federal levels. This includes Socrata-based sites, custom-API driven sites, those with downloadable datasets, web content syndication, and interactive/configurable web data sites.
The data covers everything from tobacco, to youth risk behavior stats, to emergency preparedness, to HIV, to diabetes, to maternal health, to chronic diseases, to FDA adverse drug reaction data, to Medicare related hospital/nursing home/home health comparison data.
I've provided the URLs, a summary of assets, and access paths (API, download, web, etc.):

Also, for those hacking outside of the health realm, here is the data resource page from last year's NDOCH--including data sites in the realms of disability, education, hunger, poverty, transportation, veterans, and more:
