If you're based in the Boston area I heavily encourage you to apply to Healthcare's Grand H@ckfest, hosted by the Kauffman Foundation and MIT H@cking Medicine at the MIT Media Lab this weekend. Entrepreneurs, designers, engineers, and healthcare professionals welcome! Teams will design and prototype innovative breakthroughs through the course of the weekend.
This hackathon will be unlike any that have occurred in the past. We are partnering with various of the industry's leading organizations to accelerate breakthrough ideas developed over the course of the weekend. With varied tracks (in themes such as diabetes, payers, telehealth, global health, etc), a host of healthcare's toughest pain points will be understood, analyzed and reinvented.
For the first time ever we're also partnering with GHDonline to create an online community platform for those interested in discussing possible pain points, pitches, and problem areas to identify and tackle this weekend. Join in the discussion here: http://www.ghdonline.org/grand-hackfest/
