Jefferson Health Hack
November 2 @ 5:00 pm - November 3 @ 12:00 amFree
Join us as we solve healthcare’s biggest challenges! Jefferson Health Hack is three days of problem solving, networking, collaboration, and a ton of fun!
A healthcare hackathon thrives on the collision of different worlds, experiences, and cultures. It brings together people from disparate disciplines who may not work together otherwise, to dream up scalable solutions for the most pressing issues in healthcare. These meetups can drive ideas and startups worth millions. They can also jump start significant improvements in our day-to-day practices.
This year, participants will travel through one of three tracks, or themes, to guide their ideas: Health by Zip Code – Disparity Solutions, What are you wearing? – Health Driven Wearables, and Reimagining Death – Designing End of Life. Teams will form in order address and come up with a solution to a proposed problem. Problems are identified and brought forward by participants based along the tracks. The problems are proposed and then groups naturally form as people join them based on interest and ideas. The teams formed based on these problems will work together throughout the duration of the Hackathon. Throughout the Health Hack at Jefferson, NextFab experts will be there to offer consultations on product development and solutions. Teams are then invited back to NextFab headquarters to start prototyping their solutions NextFab spaces. After a presentation to a panel of judges, a winner for each track will be selected!
