Docs and Hackers: A new decade, what's next?

Welcome to the first Docs and Hackers event of 2020! John Brownstein, Chief Innovation Officer of the Innovation and Digital Health Accelerator at Boston Children's Hospital and Daniel Nigrin, Chief Information Officer at Boston Children's Hospital will join to reflect back on 2019 digital trends and what to be excited for as we enter a new decade!

This meetup is in collaboration with the Harvard Medical School Center for Primary Care, Society of Physician Entrepreneurs (SoPE) and Flare Capital Partners.

Technology was supposed to improve healthcare. Unfortunately, it has increased physician work load, decreased doctor-patient time at a significant cost to the taxpayer. Docs and Hackers is a group of medical practitioners and technology builders who aim to reverse this trend and accelerate innovation in digital health.

Come to this meetup to share new digital health ideas, ask questions to experts in healthcare, get feedback from the group and potentially form teams. Whether it is for a side project, a new startup or a research paper.


5:30 – 5:45: Registration and networking
5:45 – 6:05: Introduction to Docs and Hackers
6:05 - 6:30: 3-4 pitches from the audience
6:30 - 7:15: Conversation with John Brownstein and Daniel Nigrin

Increasing connections between physicians and programmers will help both groups understand each other better. And create solutions that helps doctors work better, stay happier, improves patient experience and decreases overall cost.
