Global Public Health Track:

Affordable and Accessible Solutions that Will Scale

Creating 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.

Connected Health Track:

Breaking Down Barriers Across Health Systems

How can we use multi-source data to improve the provision of healthcare services? With the distribution of healthcare for a single patient across many providers, it is now more important than ever to improve synergy. This track will focus on innovating existing community workflows to promote quality healthcare delivery.

Technical Resources

Prototyping Resources

Hardware & Electronic Prototyping Supplies

MIT Grand Hack does not stock any microcontrollers, motors, and sensors. We found it best to allow participants to purchase what they may need. We recommend MicroCenter, an electronics store a few minutes away by via Uber or car. Teams are encouraged to visit this location if they need prototyping tools. MicroCenter is located at 730 Memorial Dr, Cambridge, MA 02139. Their hours are 10AM-9PM Saturday, and 11AM-6PM Sunday. Please plan accordingly.

MIT Grand Hack will reimburse up to $25 per team for the purchase of prototyping materials with a submitted receipt (tax exemption number: E042-103-594; tax exemption form). Please do not forget to keep the receipts of all purchases — you will need to return the receipts to the registration desk to get reimbursed.

Butterfly Network - 4Catalyzer Data Sets

Medical imaging should be accessible to everyone on the planet. Butterfly is democratizing accesss to clinical imaging through advances in semiconductors, deep learning and cloud computing. The Butterfly iQ (https://www.butterflynetwork.com) is the world’s first handheld whole-body ultrasound. It guides users to acquire and interpret images using artificial intelligence and augmented reality, and costs 50 times less than comparable systems.
A dataset of clinical ultrasound images for machine learning, user interface design, etc.  More detailed information and instructions can be found below:

4Catalyzer Datasets

Figure 1 Healthcare Feedback App

Figure 1 is sometimes called the “Instagram for doctors” because it’s an image sharing app in it’s most basic form, but limited to only Healthcare Professionals (HCP’s). Basically, doctors use it to share images of their patient-cases and crowd source diagnoses and other forms of feedback. Throughout the hackathon, you can submit your ideas onto Figure 1 and receive real-time feedback from medical professionals.

nference

The world’s biomedical knowledge is huge, and it keeps growing exponentially; each of us can only read the small and ever-shrinking fraction of the existing documents pertinent to our work. To tackle this problem, nference leverages machine learning for the real-time automated extraction of knowledge from the commercial, scientific, and regulatory bodies of literature. Importantly, we pair our AI and data science team with clinical scientists and genomics experts to both identify translationally relevant questions and triangulate results to these queries using molecular analytics (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, etc) and other public and proprietary datasets.  This approach allows our firm to offer a diverse set of applications ranging from R&D to commercial strategy and operations in the life sciences ecosystem. We are also internally deploying our technology to find better purposes for existing drugs through qrativ, our joint venture with the Mayo Clinic, which is backed by $8.3M Series A funding (website: qrativ.bio). Although nference is actively seeking full-time employees, we are open to to undergraduate interns. Website: nference.ai. Employment or internship inquiries should be sent to Mark Kalinich (mark@nference.net), along with a resume/CV and github if available.
