This year’s hackathon focuses on Removing Barriers to Healthcare in developing countries as well as underserved areas of developed countries, and how we can work on removing them. Why are barriers an issue? Health improves the condition of the human body. There have been developments in healthcare, but people around the world who would benefit from them have trouble connecting with these solutions. Barriers can mean not getting the healthcare you need, getting that care too late, or even not getting follow-up to maintain health. This includes, but is not limited to, affordability, physical access, transportation, lack of quality care, limited supplies, inability to leave work, improper preventive care, and lack of care professionals. A2H2’s weekend event provides a venue for participants to form cross-functional teams to collaborate and compete for prizes, develop a minimum viable product or prototype, and stimulate new solutions (software or hardware), business models, and startups that help break down barriers to healthcare.
Target audience: 100-150 students, researchers and professionals from the medical, engineering, IT, design and public health sectors including non-profits, makers of healthcare and disease prevention services, consumables drugs and devices in the area and globally.
