What Is the HealthTech Hackathon?
The second annual Hackathon was a sprint-like design event in which participants with diverse perspectives — clinicians, students, entrepreneurs, industrial designers, engineers, programmers and healthcare professionals — form teams to collaborate on solutions to pressing problems in healthcare today.
This year's event took place over an intense, fun-filled three-day weekend to ideate, iterate and innovate in order to develop novel solutions to a specific healthcare challenge. The Hackathon culminated in a team pitch competition with cash awards given to the best prototype software or apps.
Participants in the 2018 HealthTech Hackathon addressed two challenges:
- Enabling patient-centered information exchange: Will blockchain play a role?
- HealthTech — Your personal medical assistant: Is artificial intelligence the new interface?
