What is HealthHacks?

A medical hackathon is similar in structure to a traditional “hackathon,” however the focus is catered towards solving medical unmet needs instead of programming-related problems. This is the first year of HealthHacks, VCU's annual medical hackathon, which will take place on October 1-2 at VCU’s Monroe Park Campus in the East Engineering Building. It is a 24 hour period of intense innovation and problem solving. The problems will focus on three major categories:

1. Product Design and Improvements

2. Hospital Throughput

3. Patient Experience

Students will form in interdisciplinary groups of up to 4, and by the end of the 24 hour period will have a concrete solution, whether it be a rapid prototype, a solidworks 3D design, a new phone app…the options are endless.

Have an idea for a solution to a medical problem? Bring it. Assemble a team while at HealthHacks and devote the hackathon to finally developing the solution. Don't have an idea? Come and be challenged by problems pitched from patients, medical doctors, clinicians, and engineers.
