A NEW KIND OF OPEN INNOVATION EVENT THAT HELPS HEALTHCARE ECOSYSTEM SOLVE TOUGH TECHNICAL AND BUSINESS CHALLENGES TOGETHER
Organizations across the Healthcare industry feel the need to deliver better healthcare outcomes and to relieve pressure on limited resources. In the context of static business models and substantial regulatory burden, a new level of creativity and collaboration is necessary to successfully innovate, and to unlock the promise of (digital) technologies.
Hack Healthcare is an Open Innovation event aimed at creating ingenious, unorthodox solutions for the Healthcare industry. Its purpose is to help you to come up with new ideas, to explore new business models and new technologies, and to immediately test these ideas with your fellow participants. You’ll also forge new collaborations to help you start implementing your ideas the day after the event.
HACK HEALTHCARE 2023 EDITION
Screening & Prevention
Accelerate targeted screening and increase effectiveness of prevention activities
- Lung cancer screening, hosted by MSD
How might we find out people’s smoking history, capture it, and make it available for screening purposes?
- Wellness for women entering menopause, hosted by Helan
How might we bundle existing and new services to deliver a holistic personalised, scientifically sound program for women as they enter menopause, deliver it through a single platform, monitor its effectiveness, and ensure its financial sustainability?
Enhancing Patient Experience
Empower patients for greater autonomy through better knowledge and enhanced remote care.
- New, complementary, sources of support for advanced breast cancer patients, hosted by Novartis
How might we secure new sources of support for advanced breast cancer patients, inspired by dedicated patient groups, or by other community-driven initiatives, for the time in their lives when onco-nurses are not available?
- Caring for partners and/or children of advanced breast cancer patients, hosted by Novartis
How might we make resources, as well as social and emotional support, consistently available to partners and children of advanced breast cancer patients through national and local initiatives and make oncologists and onco-nurses aware of the newly available support to this group?
- Onboarding for endocrine therapy, hosted by Roche
How might we design and roll out an onboarding process for Endocrine Therapy that would help women fully understand the context of the treatment, as well as anticipate and manage side effects?
- Estimating demand for ophthalmological treatments, hosted by Roche
How might we assemble a realistic picture of current and future demand for ophthalmologists’ services to better manage available capacity for administering treatments, and accurately estimate the necessary future capacity?
Secondary use of healthcare data
- Catalog of healthcare data, hosted by the Belgian Health Data Agency
How might we overcome the legal and technical constraints to build citizens’ trust by offering an overview of which data are available from which agency or hospital, and creating a structured national data catalogue ahead of EHDS?
- Clear value of data, hosted by EASO
How might we leverage hospital electronic medical records (EMR) to effectively document how an individual patient’s data are used, and communicate the positive outcomes of sharing their data?
- Understanding value-based health outcomes, hosted by Esperity
How might we put in place a process for capturing Qualtity of Life data across multiple therapeutic areas, link them to clinical outcomes, and provide policymakers with a more comprehensive picture of effectiveness of new technology, interventions or medicines?
Humanising hospital operations
Give doctors and nurses back the time to work with the patients – as well as to optimise patient experience – by outsourcing administrative and other repetitive tasks to AI and ML tools
- Data transfer via patients, hosted by InterSystems
How might we create, in a digital and paper form, a template specific to orthopaedic cases so that the communication from one specialist to another via the patient is possible?
- Aggregating hospital data, hosted by InterSystems
How might we incentivise hospitals to share their patients’ data through a central, autonomous and independent platform, in order to make aggregated data available to other stakeholders?
- Reviewing the data collection process, hosted by Clinique St. Jean & Cliniques de l’Europe
How might we review the data collection process, adapt the existing tools, or enable better communication between different kinds of hospital software to minimise nurses’ time lost to data entry and verification?
SOLVING PROBLEMS AS AN ECOSYSTEM
Others can be solved just by having an open conversation between the stakeholders, or by applying a fresh perspective to old problems.
That’s why we make sure that the entire healthcare ecosystem is represented at Hack Healthcare, that the atmosphere of the event supports open and frank conversations, as well as creates the trust necessary to build the collaborations necessary to solve the most pressing issues in Healthcare.
