HiNZ heats up for health hackathon

Health Informatics New Zealand (HiNZ) is holding a health hackathon in Wellington next week aimed at bringing together healthcare and technology professionals to brainstorm ideas and develop solutions for healthcare needs.

The hackathon is at the Victoria University School of Design from Friday, June 26 to Sunday, June 28 and is open to software developers, clinicians, health sector managers, patients and anyone with an interest in healthcare technology.

The event will open with networking and tips on pitching at 6pm. From 6.30pm, anyone with an idea for a product makes a one-minute pitch and seeks team members. Teams then work on solutions for the rest of the weekend, with mentors available to help out and offer advice.

Each team then has the opportunity to present their work on Sunday afternoon, which will be judged by a panel involving clinicians and start-up experts.

See the HiNZ website for more information.
