18 + 19 February 2020 — Brussels
The Patient Hackathon is a two-day event where 120 participants created new solutions for improving the healthcare journey of patients and their caregivers. The hackathon put patients in the driving seat: the challenges were defined with patients and patient organizations, and patients took an active part in the event alongside with healthcare practitioners and technology specialists.
Engage patients and their caregivers in creation of new tools and solutions for the patients.
WHAT WE DID
2-day hackathon with in-depth briefings on the challenges patients and their caregivers face, ideation sessions elaborating hundreds of new ideas, team creation and team mentoring by experts in healthcare technology and innovation methodology. Final presentations towards a jury of outstanding professionals who provided yet more excellent feedback on the participants’ projects.
The results went far beyond the ideas generated and projects elaborated during the event (some of which are currently under development). The most important part of the event was empowering the patients, giving them the leading role in healthcare innovation. In addition, the event created new connections within the healthcare ecosystem, as well as reinforced its connections with the world of healthcare technology – especially with the startups.
