This Year’s Theme:
Pharmaceutical Innovation for Patient Care
Pharmaceuticals touch every aspect and age in healthcare and are versatile tools that physicians use to treat patients. The HealthHacks challenges for 2019 will explore creating new methods, devices and tools that could potentially revolutionize patient care. Teams of students from diverse backgrounds — including engineering, computer science, business, design and health professions — will come up with ideas to make it easier and safer to deliver medications. Team solutions may be physical technologies, software designs and/or products to assist physicians, pharmacists and caregivers in managing patient medications. Industry and academic sponsors will present real-world challenges to all on Saturday morning.
