CO-CREATED WITH THE HEALTHCARE ECOSYSTEM

Themes and challenges for Hack Healthcare have been identified in collaboration with of over 50 healthcare professionals, patients, representatives of pharmaceutical and insurance companies, startups and researchers.

SOLVING PROBLEMS AS AN ECOSYSTEM

Some problems are just too large for any one company to solve.  They require an entirely new way for stakeholders to interact, a new business model, or a completely different set of technologies. The hardest ones will require combined resources of several companies.

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.
