Hacking Health Ottawa #HIP613 Hackathon

“We’re more than a hackathon, we’re bringing innovation to healthcare”

The Hackathon is finally here!

Apply here to participate, and don’t forget to Save the Date! Priority will be given to engaged participants so come and meet our community before the hackathon. Add your idea or sign-up for a team by joining our Sparkboard. Interested applicants are encouraged to attend preparatory events. If you would just like to be an observer for the night (pitch/finale) you can register directly.

What is the #HIP613 Hackathon?

#HIP613 is a weekend-long hackathon that breaks down barriers to healthcare innovation. We bring together healthcare professionals, IT, designers, policy analysts and entrepreneurs to collaborate, dream up & create solutions to real world problems to improve healthcare.

At the hackathon, we will build prototypes of our ideas, so that they can be tested to potentially transform healthcare. We are excited to have CHEO-OCTC consider your successful projects for pilot opportunities at the hospital. Other projects will move on to become viable startups — and that’s how we together can create impact!

Early bird tickets are $35 for participants so be sure to apply soon. Observer tickets are $20. The early bird rate ends April 3rd.

Hackathon Schedule

Our weekend hackathons are fun, intense, hands-on events where small teams tackle tough problems in a supportive community of peers and mentors. All meals will be catered for you this weekend – on us!

Friday evening is about pitching ideas and challenges – and forming teams around those ideas and challenges.

Saturday is about working together to bring your idea to life.

Sunday is about demonstrating your innovative solution, getting feedback from a friendly panel and vying for up to $120,000 value in prizes, and invaluable connections!
