What is a Healthcare Hackathon?
Healthcare hackathons bring clinicians and other healthcare professionals together with a diverse group of engineers, students, programmers, designers and entrepreneurs to solve the toughest problems in healthcare. These events create networks, foster vibrant communities and have resulted in innovative solutions to complex problems. In many cases, projects have evolved into new venture opportunities for start-up companies.
