The widely celebrated Jefferson Health Hack is back. Over three days, participants will network, brainstorm and collaborate to solve healthcare’s biggest challenges.
A healthcare hackathon thrives on the collision of different worlds, experiences and cultures. It brings together people from disparate disciplines who may not work together otherwise to dream up scalable solutions for the most pressing issues in healthcare. These meetups can drive ideas and startups worth millions, as well as jumpstart significant improvements in our day-to-day practices.
The event will be held Nov. 2-4 at Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University), focusing on three tracks:
- Healthcare With No Address: Ten years from now, where and how will you access and supply health and wellness information? How and why will you interact with experts? What new products will drive the move to decentralization and “health with no address?”
- Wearables and Data Science: It’s 2018 and we can now take an electrocardiogram on demand, right from our wrist. Our personal devices are becoming guardians and companions to our health. What’s the next frontier?
- Medical Cannabis and Hemp: Medicinal cannabis and industrial hemp are growing into multibillion dollar industries. How can tech drive the connection between these industries and a healthier future?
No software hacking experience is required. The only prerequisite is a willingness to share your experiences with others and your passion to work on a solution for a problem. The competition is structured to give flight to your ideas. Three grand prize winners will each receive $5,000 in funding.
There are three ways you can participate in the Jefferson Health Hack. Want a shot at the grand prize? Sign up as a participant. Are you a titan of industry or an expert in your field? Join us as a mentor. Want to help out behind the scenes? Become a volunteer.
