Med.Hack(+) is an annually held, healthcare themed hackathon, focused on developing solutions to current issues in healthcare.

About this event

Med.Hack(+) is an event designed to solve problems in healthcare through the use of technology. Brainstorm ideas, form teams, and prototype solutions to real-life issues over the course of 48 hours, guided by local mentors in health, technology, and business.

Throughout the weekend, our mentors and speakers will give you food for thought — not to mention the actual food we provide to fuel your design sessions. Enjoy breakfasts, lunches and dinners at Innovation Place while networking with Saskatoon's community of innovative, driven entrepreneurs, technologists, and healthcare professionals.

Do you work in healthcare? Or are you a patient yourself?

We’re looking for everyone across the One Health spectrum: not just physicians and nurses, but also therapists, social workers, paramedics, veterinarians, psychologists, dentists, assistants, dental hygienists, pharmacists, and other specialists. We are also looking for patient mentors for our teams who are willing to share their lived experiences in the healthcare system and help design compassionate, patient-friendly solutions.

Do you know how to code software or build technology?

We welcome engineers of all kinds, coders, developers, designers, programmers, tinkerers, makers, and anyone else who enjoys creating technology. Past years' prototypes were developed using wildly diverse methods and materials, including sensors and circuits, 3D-printed objects, plastic and cardboard, and even recycled machines and vehicles. On the software side, teams have created phone and tablet applications, desktop software, and AI-driven models using cutting-edge techniques.

Do you work in industry?

Ideas and prototypes are only as good as their ability to make it to market. If you have experience in business, entrepreneurism, legal, accounting, or any other sector that facilitates taking an idea and turning it into a commercial opportunity, we want you to attend.

Are you interested in attending the hackathon and seeing the projects, but can't commit to a project yourself?

You are still welcome at Med.Hack(+)! Buy a spectator ticket that allows you to attend part of the weekend.

If any of the above describes you, we encourage you to attend our hackathon, see unique and exciting projects, and help shape the future of health. You don’t know what ideas are “brewing in brains” until they’ve had a chance to materialize. Who knows where this hackathon will take you?
