160 participants, 26 projects, and a massive dose of youth and energy for the national eHealth conference. // Inspiring kick-off + 8-week duration + bi-weekly work sessions + final 3-day sprint = Spectacular demos and projects
Launched at the Center for Digital Media in Vancouver in 2016, and at the OTN day in Toronto in 2015, the Design Challenge culminated in the national eHealth conference. The competing teams showcased impressive projects and injected a massive dose of youth, energy and innovation in the conference program. The 8 week format allowed them to develop momentum and partnerships hardly possible in a traditional hackathon. Some, like iUGO Health, even went on to become highly successful digital health startups.
Hacking Health is doing great things across the country. We thought: Let’s join forces and go further together!
