Patients Included in Connected Care
Hacking Health is partnering once again with the e-Health 2018 Conference to include patients in a hackathon set to tackle the pressing healthcare issue of chronic disease management. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, three out of five Canadians aged 20 and older have a chronic disease, and 67% of all deaths per year are caused by four major chronic diseases (cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular and chronic respiratory diseases). Participants will work hand-in-hand with patients and clinician experts, building innovative software solutions focused on prevention, home care, and community care!
The challenge will begin with the opening ceremony and project pitches on Sunday, May 27th, where the leaders of selected projects will give short pitches explaining the healthcare problems they seek to solve. Participants will also have the opportunity to network with other conference delegates. Teams will then spend the next day and a half designing, building, testing, validating and tuning their prototypes in preparation for the demo competition, working with mentors to refine and improve their solutions. Once the hacking is complete, all teams will be evaluated by an expert panel of judges when the teams present to conference delegates on May 29th. Winners from the final presentations will be announced with awards presented shortly after.
We will support you when you need it, we will feed you often, and we will make sure our partners provide an opportunity to make your projects a reality.
