Northeastern’s “Nurses Hack Healthcare” is a one of a kind event that can’t be missed! This year’s focus is on evolving the field of “telehealth” and “the medical home”. If you’re looking to network, there will be hundreds of attendees of different disciplines that include web designers, technologists, nurses, computer scientists, engineers, designers to name a few ready to interact and make connections. If you’re looking to take an idea to the next level, we have mentors and resources that can propel your idea onto the frontlines of healthcare as well as cash prizes for winning teams. Nurses Hack Healthcare will be the event that spurs the beginning of immense change and innovation.

Focus:

Following last year’s format of open-ended ideation around the broad topic of “health care innovations”, this year the focus will be on the evolving field of “telehealth” and healthcare within the “home” for older adults. With the advances in sensors for home monitoring, wearable devices, and ubiquitous communications technologies, there is an unprecedented opportunity for delivering effectively tailored health interventions on a large scale!

How Long?

Hackathons range into time from day sessions to multiple day sessions. In our case were offering a 2 and a half-day, high-energy event that is designed to present problems relevant to healthcare and formulate solutions among teams. Hacking Healthcare brings together individuals of all disciplines: nursing, engineering, computer science, etc., to influence innovations that are well rounded. By emphasizing multi-disciplinary teams, your teams can stay connected beyond the hackathon to further possible business ventures and future collaboration!
