Hacking Health is partnering with the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN), Canada’s Health Informatics Association, Canada Health Infoway, and the Canadian Institute for Health Information to deliver this 8 week design challenge culminating in a demo showcase and prizes to be awarded at the National eHealth Conference May 31-June 2nd, 2015.

 The event will begin with a kick-off at the MaRS Centre March 30th, 11 am. Dr. Ed Brown, CEO of OTN, will announce challenges and priorities for participants to work on. Participants will then begin co-developing solutions with a design jam to be facilitated by Usability Matters. OTN will also announce exciting prize packages totalling $10,000 cash plus in-kind support.

 Teams will then go virtual for 8 weeks. We will be hosting 4 meetups every two weeks with exciting keynotes to keep teams engaged and motivated.

Finally, teams will convene at the National eHealth Conference hosted by Canada’s Health Informatics Association, Canada Health Infoway, and the Canadian Institute for Health Information. Starting with an evening reception on May 31st, and followed by 48 hours of final tweaking, validation, and testing, the teams will then partake in a demo competition in which they are judged and scrutinized, with winners announced shortly after.

Registrations are now open with early bird pricing of $25 for individuals and $125 for team (of up to 10 participants).

Health Hackers are a different breed of innovator! If you are a healthcare professional (doctor, nurse, pharmacist, health administration, care worker, etc), developer (coder, engineer, programmer), or designer (creative design, graphics, and UX), please register. (Team registration welcome)
