We are Hacking Health Berlin

Hacking Health (HH) is a global movement to transform healthcare through creative collaboration between healthcare professionals and technology creators. Some of the ways that HH is transforming healthcare: Cafés: where people and ideas mingle. This is where community begins and expands. Hackathons: intense, scrappy, and informal in just the right doses. Teams quickly form, collaborate and test ideas with functional prototypes – all in one weekend. We look forward to meeting you!

HACKING HEALTH is a grassroots, volunteer-based, unconventional organization that achieves impact through a very creative, collaborative, bottom-up, community-centered approach. It is now looking to achieve a new level of impact, building on its unique DNA.  


Foster innovative digital health ecosystems.
Engage and inspire its stakeholders.
Support the development of human-centric solutions.


HACKING HEALTH is a mindset, not a skillset.
All members are considered valuable contributors, regardless of the expertise and experience that they have to offer. Hackathons are a collective activity that transcends individual agendas to give a voice to all sector stakeholders. HACKING HEALTH’s desire is to drive impact, to focus on more action and less talk. We engage diverse stakeholders both inside and outside the health sector to look at healthcare challenges from a variety of perspectives to bring fresh insights and build new, innovative solutions. We favor rapid, iterative development of solutions in a manner that creates the shortest feedback loop between users and creators.
