Welcome to the Future of Healthcare Hackathon

Have you ever wanted to innovate in the health data sandbox? Welcome to the Future of Healthcare Hackathon where we are paving the way with solutions to address some of the biggest challenges in healthcare: Privacy, Public Health, and Patient Care.

Our goal is to bring talent from tech and healthcare backgrounds to solve challenges facing our healthcare system today. We want to use our skills to hack for good!

We will have 3 unique datasets to leverage during the event: price transparency data by Turquoise, synthetic datasets by Syntegra, and a variety of datasets related to provider/payer information sharing provided by Datavant.

Winners can bring their projects to life by leveraging our prize pool: travel to Washington D.C. and present at the annual Future of Health Data Summit (on 9/15), a conference whose other presenters will include Former and Current Heads of the FDA, Former U.S. Secretary of the VA, Chief Data Officer of Broad institute, Federal CIO and ~250 high profile leaders in healthcare, tech, policy, and press in attendance, access to the Datavant platform, a variety of cash prizes, and more!

This virtual event will take place 9/8-9/11 with sign-ups starting 8/8!

Privacy

Privacy prompt thought-starters: solutions for reproductive health, privacy enabled genomic data, genomic data de-identification, or tackle any other patient privacy problem!

Reproductive health: Create prototype or app to give visibility to women on privacy risks that may limit their access to healthcare, ensure privacy is maintained, and takes into consideration local policies.
Genomics: Create a solution to best leverage genomic data in a privacy protected way or help shape what de-identification looks like for genomic data.
Or build your own solution for patient privacy!

Public Health

Opioid epidemic: 136 people die every day from an opioid overdose. Using publicly available data identify a need and create a product or solution that helps to address the opioid crisis.
Pandemic preparedness: COVID is not our first or last pandemic. If we are better able to prepare in the future, we may reduce lives lost and increase the speed of “return to normal”. Spec and/or build initial prototypes of products that can help the U.S. and Global leaders be prepared for the next pandemic.

Improving Patient Care

Build a prototype or app to improve patient care in 1 of 3 ways: patient access/knowledge, quality of care, or reduction of price
Transparency of Healthcare Prices
Health Equity
Understand Your Genomics Data
Click for More Info

Improving Patient Care

Transparency of Healthcare prices: The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) established the hospital price transparency rule to help individuals know the cost of a hospital item or service before receiving it. We will provide a dataset of prices across providers. Use this dataset to create a prototype supporting the initiative of reducing prices of healthcare.

Patient care prompt thought-starters: bring visibility or reduce cost of care, improve health equity, patient facing tool for genomic mutations, payer/providers solution using connected data, or tackle any other patient care problem!
