WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE IN THE HACKATHON?
Designers and (service) design thinkers can help to build digital & physical solutions that focus on human needs, creating the right experience for each solution based on the journeys of patients and professionals.
This is the group that is most familiar with hackathons. Developers are needed for the creation of the first working prototypes, using programming languages, data science or any other technical experience to realize ideas.
The challenges in healthcare require new ways of thinking, new business models and concepts to deliver care. These entrepreneurial minds contribute by working on sustainable health(care) innovation.
Any person involved in field-related research is welcome to join and contribute with their expertise.
Any university professor interested in participating can participate with their leading skills and in-field experience.
Health(care) professionals with ideas that require technical assistance-doctors, surgeons, nurses, administrators, etc. – are encouraged to come and present their ideas or join a team to help them with their experience and knowledge.
A patient has the most knowledge about the essence and effect of his/her disease. To work on meaningful innovations we need to have patients on board, explaining what they need and how a solution might fit in their lives.
Although your skillset might not be listed in the other descriptions, it could still be very usefull. So bring your fresh perspective, new insights and use your skills to further improve healthcare.
