Wanted: Forward-thinking participants for medical hackathon
Forward-thinking students and professionals from across Yale and throughout Connecticut will gather on campus March 27–29 to develop innovative tools and strategies for improving the patient experience and to create better models for predicting the risk of hospital readmissions.
Titled the 2015 CBIT-CORE Hackathon: Improving the Patient Experience and Reducing Readmissions, the event is an initiative of the Yale Center for Biomedical and Interventional Technology and the Yale Center for Outcomes Research and Evaluation.
The participants will represent a range of fields —including medicine, public health, engineering, computer science, statistics, bioinformatics, business, and design.
Speakers and participants will outline healthcare “pain points,” form interdisciplinary teams, and work together throughout the weekend to build prototypes, apps, services, and platforms that could have significant implications for both clinicians and patients. Industry leading mentors will join and support teams towards the ultimate goal of sustainable and successful ventures.
