Event Details

Pitch ideas, form teams, get advice from experts, and build a useable solution to address the users' problems over the course of a weekend. Sunday afternoon demo your solution in front of a panel of judges for a chance of winning some fantastic prizes!

Hacking Health fosters collaborative innovation by engaging key groups of stakeholders, such as healthcare professionals, developers, designers, entrepreneurs, and patients, to create human-centric solutions to improve the health of our communities. Our weekend hackathons are fun, intense, hands-on events where small teams tackle tough problems in a supportive community of peers and mentors.



Three prizes consisting of MedStack Control usage credits for the top three winning teams.
• The values of the credits are $500, $300, and $200 (USD).
• At current pricing, this equivalent to 5, 3, and 2 months of service on a “small” sized docker node.
• The prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third place teams as determined by the judges of the hackathon.

People's Choice Prize:  Muse headband


Pitch Your Ideas on Sparkboard
As soon as you get you register for the hackathon, go to Hacking Health Hamilton 2019 Sparkboard where you can either pitch your project ideas, describing them briefly and their skill requirements (designer, developer, medical expert, etc), or find a pitch/project idea that interests you or that matches your skills.

See a pitch/project idea that interests you or that matches your skills? Click on the board for further details and click on the Join button near the bottom to support the idea. Joining a project does not automatically assign you to that team, but shows your interest in the idea. (Teams are created on Friday evening of the Hackathon when you choose, after the pitches, which team you would like to work with.)

Need inspiration on making a pitch? Check out last year's Sparkboard. You can also visit previous Hacking Health Hackathon success stories.

Here are steps on how to use Sparkaboard to create a project or join an existing team.
