PennApps Fall 2015 Hackathon

Friday, September 4, 2015 - 10:00am to Sunday, September 6, 2015 - 2:00pm

We are each affected by the shortcomings of a healthcare system overwhelmed with outdated technology, whether through our own experiences or those of our friends and family. We will be bringing together top clinicians, engineers, designers, and industry sponsors to take on the biggest challenges in health. We invite you to join us as we hack our health for a better, faster, more accessible, and more equitable health experience.

The PennApps Health symposium will include keynotes on the power of technology to improve healthcare. Stay tuned for more details, but previous symposiums also hosted interactive panel discussions featuring entrepreneurs and engineers who are using technology to innovate in healthcare, and a reception for hackers to discuss their ideas with the speakers, as well as clinical and industry mentors.

Aside from the mentors coming from our corporate sponsors, clinical mentors representing the fields of Radiology, Cardiology, Pulmonology and Psychology as well as mentors with backgrounds in medical and diagnostic imaging, bioinformatics, and clinical informatics will be present during the hackathon. We will also have graduate student mentors from the fields of design, biomedical engineering, and medicine.
