Cleveland to host medical hackathon

Members of Northeast Ohio’s tech and medical communities are invited to participate in the first annual Cleveland Medical Hackathon Sept. 26-27 at the Global Center for Health Innovation in downtown Cleveland.
 
The event, presented by Nesco Resource, will bring together programmers, doctors, patient advocates and entrepreneurs for a weekend of creativity and collaboration. Participants will be challenged to apply innovation and technology to problems facing health care.

Lead partners behind the Cleveland MedHack include Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, The MetroHealth System and BioEnterprise. More partners are expected to be announced soon from the Northeast Ohio medical and entrepreneurial communities.
 
The two-day event 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 Cleveland Convention Center. Application to participate is currently open, and there is no fee to apply.
 
A key goal of the medhack is to begin to tackle the growing levels of data being collected in medicine and to design and build solutions that will make this data useful to health care systems and patients.
