Event description


UPDATE: Due to the impending weather, the Hacking Health St. John’s Hackathon has been postponed.

We are exploring new dates at the end of April and beginning of May. Once we have a date finalized, we will update with new details.


Have you identified problems related to health promotion within your domain? Do you have a solution in mind but need help realizing it? Do you have an idea for a mobile or web-based application that can change everything for you or your colleagues/patients? Register today to share it your idea or join a multidisciplinary team to Innovate the future of Healthcare!

Our first Hacking Health St. John's Hackathon is a weekend-long hackathon that breaks down barriers to healthcare innovation by bringing together IT and healthcare professionals to collaborate, dream up & design apps, devices and solutions for patient-centric care.

Pitch ideas, form teams, get advice from experts, and build a solution - all in one weekend. Present your finished product in front of a panel of judges for a chance of winning some fantastic prizes!

We've set up our Sparkboard! This site will help us know who is coming to the event, what ideas teams are working on, and who needs help. Most important, it helps participants form teams that bridge the gap between medicine and technology.

What is Hacking Health?

Hacking Health is an international movement designed to improve health care by inviting technology creators and health care professionals to collaborate on realistic, human-centric solutions to front-line problems.
