Hacking Health Windsor-Detroit II


Welcome to Hacking Health Windsor-Detroit II!

Hacking Health Windsor-Detroit breaks down barriers to healthcare innovation by bringing together IT and healthcare professionals across the US-Canada border to collaborate, dream up & design apps for patient-centric care.

The first Windsor-Detroit Hacking Health was held at Tech Town Detroit – an innovation hub just five minutes from the border in May, 2015.

Building on that success Hacking Health Windsor-Detroit II will be crossing the border into Windsor May 13-15, 2016 which will be held at the Toldo Health Education Centre at the University of Windsor.

HH Ottawa: How to Hack Healthcare

How to Hack Healthcare: #ideatoapp2015

In collaboration with the Ottawa Internet of Things conference (@IoT613), Hacking Health Ottawa (@HHOttawa) has hosted a fun, engaging, and exciting workshop on Thursday, Sept. 24th at 6:00 pm (doors open at 5:30 pm)!

We heared from Dr. Jordan Littman, a family physician who learned how to code and subsequently developed Prescribe Smart – an app that guides medication prescribers with up-to-date information about available medications, prices, LU codes, and much more! He will go through his app development process, as well as lessons learned and problems encountered in bringing his idea to fruition.

With the guidance of Juliana Alvarez and Paul Cuciureanu, both professionals in the fields of design, UX, and social media, we learned about the fundamentals of how to approach the development of your idea into an app, as well as how to troubleshoot problems you may encounter along the way!

Lastly, we connected participants with a multidisciplinary team of professionals to start working on your ideas and healthcare problems – the first step into making them a reality!

This promisesed to be an educational and rewarding experience. Come with your skills, ideas, and/or healthcare problems you want to solve in our next event in January. Check back here for more details soon.
