What we do

From Events to Transformation in Healthcare

Events are a way to connect, engage, educate, inspire, but the ultimate goal is to transform healthcare. Hacking Health leaders and communities tackle this endeavor one step at a time, relentlessly growing in impact and maturity towards that final vision. Ultimately, Hacking Health leaders act as brokers of innovation in their communities.


These monthly events bring together the digital health community. They provide
a casual environment where members of the community can share their experience, have open discussions with mentors and coaches, and network with other members.


Physicians, healthcare professionals and technology experts team up and connect with leaders, entrepreneurs, buyers and decision makers in high energy weekends across the country. Teams and early stage start-ups work collaboratively to build tangible solutions and prototypes.


Expert-led co-creation clinics and workshops in a variety of healthcare fields and specialties are held on innovation, creativity, technology, how to make sense of it all, and how to stop talking and start acting. Workshops can also be private events, held in a controlled environment, for specfic associations, institutions, hospitals, and specialists.


The Coopérathon is the new generation of hackathons, running over 4 weeks to foster quality solutions driven by partnerships and supported by the community it seeks to serve.The event is the result of a collaboration between Desjardins Lab and HH and focused on health, smart city and fintech challenges.


The Health Innovation Management Community of Practice facilitates monthly videoconferences and co-organized the first on-site visits in Montreal, Toronto, Detroit and Macon, Georgia in Oct. 2017.

In the past months, hospital partners (CHU Ste-Justine, CHEO, Henry Ford Health System, NavicentHealth, Shriners, and others) and HH leaders have discussed scientific articles and exchanged about their current practice and planned development.


Members of the Hacking Health community keep connected, stay informed, promote activities and partners, and share insightful knowledge through a variety of electronic publications and social media. From global and local newsletters, websites, Twitter feeds, blogs, Facebook pages, LinkedIn Forums and other channels, Hacking Health reaches a constantly growing audience , and its clear voice resonates in the arena
of digital innovation and collaboration in healthcare.
