Hack Healthcare is an annual open innovation event aimed at creating ingenious, unorthodox solutions for the Healthcare industry. Its purpose is to help participants come up with new ideas, explore new business models and new technologies, and to immediately test these ideas with each other.
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. At Hack Healthcare companies forge new collaborations to start implementing your ideas immediately after the event.
WHAT WE DID
Over a 100 participants of all ages – 46% of whom were women – joined the first edition of the event.
They came from different healthcare sectors (hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, etc.) as well as technology companies, patients and their representatives, entrepreneurs, and other professionals, and worked together on improving healthcare for two intense days.
Hack Healthcare 2021 was centered around 4 broad themes
DATA VALUE CHAINS
ALTERNATIVE FINANCING MODELS
In order to have concrete results, we constructed smaller, more specific challenges that can be meaningfully addressed in just two days.
15 teams were formed and 6 of them continued working on their projects, in collaboration with the companies that supported the different challenges.
In addition to the immediate results, the event saw a seamless, successful, collaboration between companies and people from all across the healthcare ecosystem – including between companies that usually are in direct competition with each other.
