Are you interested in healthcare innovation?

Then this is the event for you!

Join MIT Hacking Medicine for one of the largest health hackathons in the world! This is the weekend to brainstorm and build innovative solutions with hundreds of like-minded engineers, clinicians, designers, developers and business people. Within our three hackathon tracks, there is sure to be a healthcare challenge for everyone!


Invisible Conditions Track

Create solutions to minimize the stigma and challenges that surround patients living with their illness. This track will discover innovative approaches aimed to improve a patient’s ability to maintain a high level of independence by improving patient quality of life and patient outcomes.

SMART Robotics and Intelligent Technologies

Social robotics and intelligent technologies are revolutionizing the healthcare sector. Enhanced connectivity between stakeholders, cloud and predictive analytics, image/voice recognition, are just a few examples of the huge potential to transform the healthcare industry.
This Track was first featured in Singapore by SMART in a hackathon featuring the Segway Robotics Loomo robot, focused on eldercare problems. Now this track challenges Boston teams to develop potential use cases and prototypes for smart robotics and intelligent technology solutions in healthcare.  Although not a requirement teams have the unique opportunity to choose to use Segway Loomo robots with full SDK.

Patient Care Continuum Track

Design ​effective solutions to ​empower seriously or chronically ill patients, increase access to ​higher quality care, and leverage new health information/tools. These solutions should aim to facilitate active connections between health care providers, caregivers, and patients, so that patients feel in control of their condition and the continuity of care is strengthened.
