BWH & MIT H@cking Medicine – Joint Hackathon | September 20-22nd

Sept 20-22nd.  @BWHiHUB @HackMedMIT

Engineers, Entrepreneurs, Physicians, Designers, and Scientists:

You are invited the inaugural joint hack-a-thon between Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and H@cking Medicine!

This event brings together innovative, forward-thinking minds to change the status quo and create disruptive solutions in healthcare today. You are needed to help drive the much-needed change in healthcare.

The weekend hackathon takes place September 20 – 22. with a kick-off social event Friday to meet the other attendees at BWH with light bites and refreshments. The hackathon will start Saturday morning and will take place at the Shapiro Cardiovascular Center at BWH.  In addition, BWH will provide nourishment for the weekend. Please see the agenda below for more details about the logistics for the event.

To participate, apply by Monday, September 16th. Bring your skills, your ideas, or both. 110 of applicants will be selected to participate.

 Click here to apply

This hack-a-thon will bring together a diverse, multidisciplinary group to “pitch” problems impacting healthcare, develop solutions over a two-day period, and then present demos of your solutions to a panel of judges for recognition and honors.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to collaborate with experts in a variety of fields and novices with infectious passion, pitch an idea for transforming a current health care process and together, ‘hack’ or devise a real solution. These solutions could be as straightforward as a wireframe sketch, or might require running to a local store for parts to build a prototype, or reaching out to a physician to ask a pressing question for a mobile app. The ultimate result could be the beginning of the next big health care transformation.

End the weekend with a team, new connections, and prizes with potential access to BWH’s iHub resources (see below), and a hack on its first steps towards disrupting healthcare. Past teams at hack-a-thons just like this one have gone on to found companies, enter business plan competitions (MIT 100K), join an accelerator, and secure venture funding.

H@cking Medicine Physician B!TCH FEST

By | events, Uncategorized | No Comments

Hey Physicians!

Look. We get it.  You do some annoying sh*t.  You don’t have a ton of time.  Lots of what you do is a waste of your time and brainpower and is inefficient!

You probably are getting tired of complaining about the most annoying/unbelievable things you have to do as a physician with no improvement in sight. And, if we had to guess, your friends and significant others are probably tired of pretending to listen.  Well, look no further, people.  We have people that WANT TO HEAR YOUR PROBLEMS!

Come to The Tip Tap Room 7-9pm, Thursday July 18th to the H@cking Medicine Physician B!TCH FEST.  Share your problems, issues, rants, complaints, grievances, wishes, pains, — you get the idea.  We want to find problems in healthcare that are at ground zero – and you can be a huge help in this!  And, if nothing else, come enjoy some free apps and enjoy the company of your fellow residents and engineers over a few beers. If the groups votes that your idea is the most annoying with highest painpoint, then we pay for your bar tab. I know…pretty sweet…

If you want to join, please sign up here!

See you all soon, we hope!

The H@cking Medicine Team
