Thank you for a great event!

Stayed tuned for more info on monthly events and A2H2 2018!

Check out the A2H2 2017 recap to learn all about the event!

What is A2 Health Hacks?

In 2014, investors pumped $6.5 billion into 459 health technology startups across the US, many of which originated at hackathons. Traditionally a hackathon is where a large group coders come together to collaborate in order to create usable software or ideas. We’ve turned this idea on its head and bring together hackers, makers, entrepreneurs, and healthcare professionals to build on everyone’s collective knowledge and experience in order to tackle some of the industry’s most complicated issues.

Designers, Engineers, Crafters, & Builders

It’s not always about inventing something new or solving problems through software. Many of today’s healthcare problems are caused because not everyone thinks about the end user when developing solutions. Maybe it’s about rethinking the approach for a process, engineering new physical prototypes, or redesigning someone’s DIY efforts to reach a larger audience. Makers have a unique way of approaching the world’s problems and what better way to have an impact than on healthcare issues!

Hackers, Coders, Developers, & IT

We need anyone involved in programming and software development to help make this event successful! It’s not just about knowing the problems the healthcare industry faces, but understanding the capability of technology to solve problems. Help us think outside the box and reframe issues into problems that can be solved through the development of innovative software or programing.

Healthcare experts may be the biggest link to making our event a success. Without truly understanding the issues and hurdles the healthcare industry faces, it’s almost impossible to find the best way to address these. Without those who are investing in this world day in and day out, technology could be built with only half of the picture resulting in subpar results or solutions.

Business Experts, Administrators, Finance, & Contractors

Healthcare solutions always sound amazing and begin with good intentions, but can quickly lose focus because of difficulties scaling up and implementing. Entrepreneurs can help ensure that ideas are economically feasible and presented in a way that would garner support from backers.
