Event description


#HIP613 is a fun, hands-on, intense, 3-day hackathon that breaks down barriers to healthcare innovation in Ottawa taking place at Shopify. We invite healthcare professionals, designers, patients, developers, innovators and entrepreneurs to take part in building useable solutions to frontline healthcare problems.

The themes for this year's Hackathon include social isolation, connected care, and enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of diagnoses.

At the hackathon, teams will pitch ideas, get advice from experts and build solutions that can be integrated and implemented into our healthcare system. We are excited to see the projects you’re dreaming up come to life!

Attend our Design Thinking Workshop and Pitch Clinic to prepare for the Hackathon.

Buy your ticket and sign-up for the Sparkboard. Here is a walkthrough on how to join Sparkboard.
