Medical Hackathon returns to Cleveland this fall

Members of Northeast Ohio’s tech and medical communities are invited to participate in the second annual Cleveland Medical Hackathon, to be held in conjunction with Cleveland Clinic’s Medical Innovation Summit Oct. 22-23 at the Global Center for Health Innovation.
Last year, the inaugural Cleveland Medical Hackathon attracted more than 200 men and women from across the country. Some of the brightest minds in medicine and technology collaborated in round-the-clock efforts to use technology to solve big challenges in healthcare. About $5,000 in prize money was awarded to winning teams.

This year’s agenda centers on healthcare transformation in areas like patient engagement, treatment outcomes, security and integrity, as well as community health. 

Lead partners behind the Cleveland Medical Hackathon include Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, The MetroHealth System, Case Western Reserve University, HIMSS and BioEnterprise.
The Hackathon will take place in the HIMSS Innovation Center, a state-of-the-art meeting and technology space on the top floor of the global center, adjacent to the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland. 
The Cleveland Medical Hackathon is free to attend and to participate in, but an application is necessary to ensure a productive mix of expertise and adequate space.  Individuals and teams may apply now at
