POSTPONED: Due to the forecasted storm this weekend, the Hacking Health Hackathon is postponed. Updates regarding the rescheduled date and venue will be posted on Facebook, Twitter, Eventbrite, and http://hackinghealth.ca/stjohns/ when available.
Have you identified problems related to health promotion within your domain? Do you have a solution in mind but need help realizing it? Do you have an idea for a mobile or web-based application that can change everything for you or your colleagues/patients? Register today and share it!
Our first Hacking Health St. John’s Hackathon is a weekend-long hackathon that breaks down barriers to healthcare innovation by bringing together IT and healthcare professionals to collaborate, dream up & design apps, devices and solutions for patient-centric care.
Early Bird ticket prices are available until March 1, 2017. After that, all ticket prices will go up by $10.

What does the fee include?
The fee includes: a breakfast/lunch/dinner and drinks! And of course the ability to participate in an inspiring and fun weekend working on improving healthcare!
Can I participate for one or two days?
You can only participate if you attend the whole weekend (Friday March 31-Sunday, April 2).
If you really can’t attend the full three days but still want to be part of Hacking Health St. John’s, become a volunteer by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org! Or watch the presentations on Sunday.
Is my idea for a pitch any good?
Yes! As long as your idea is related to healthcare and a possible solution can be prototyped technically, digitally or visually.
Sparkboard is our online platform where you can present your idea/problem before the start of the weekend. Participants will be able to browse the different projects to see what interests them. A good way to get people enthusiastic about your idea!
