The Cleveland Medical Hackathon will return to downtown Cleveland this fall with new features. Hosted Oct. 22-23, 2016, the second-annual hackathon will take place in conjunction with Cleveland Clinic’s Medical Innovation Summit.
The inaugural Cleveland Medical Hackathon (#clemedhack) presented by Nesco Resource climaxed Sunday, Sept. 27 with three winners chosen out of 21 competing teams, according to a press release from Nesco Resource.
Doctors, nurses, patient advocates, researchers, scientists, programmers, entrepreneurs, engineers, and developers worked for over 24 hours on projects leveraging technology to solve big challenges in the world of medicine, health and wellness.
More than 225 participants joined with mentors from medical, law, tech and public health fields to identify problems, pitch ideas, share expertise, and ultimately form teams to find solutions within a 24-hour time period.
