Who we are

Hacking Health is a global movement to improve healthcare

Our Mission

Hacking Health fosters inclusive innovation by connecting people to solve real-world health problems.

Our Vision

Where health innovation becomes a reality

Our Values

Inclusivity – Collaboration – Integrity – Inspiration

 

Hacking Health is a grassroots movement composed of volunteers who choose to unite in the pursuit of a joint mission: Breaking down barriers to innovation in healthcare.

In the face of increasingly complex health issues, we engage all stakeholders inside and outside the healthcare sector. By facilitating cross-disciplinary collaborations, we help generate creative solutions to real-world health challenges. Our methodology enables new ways to make the best ideas emerge and create a lasting impact.

During our events, we bring together patients, healthcare professionals, physicians, technologists, designers, entrepreneurs, decision-makers, business leaders, researchers, administrators, and governments to work collaboratively and resolve frontline problems.

We Work Hand-in-hand with Established Actors

In each city we have a chapter, our volunteers engage and work hand-in-hand with established actors. Acting as catalyzers, our chapters re-energize partners with new methodologies and perspective. Our movement fosters collaboration between organizations for the good of individuals.
