Would you like to help identify and solve problems and work on projects to improve healthcare, and potentially win prizes?  If so, Hacking Health is for you.

Australia's Hacking Health 2017 calls upon people interested in improving healthcare to come together to innovate to deliver value and connect care.  

Who's invited? Innovators, entrepreneurs, developers, designers, analysts, health practitioners, community groups, patient and consumer advocates, academics, students (from across different disciplines), and others interested in coming together to improve healthcare.

What Solutions Does Hacking Health Seek?

Hacking Health is an opportunity to explore what's possible in a connected health system.  

Examples of innovations to deliver greater value in healthcare could, for example, include solutions for:

better patient and consumer outcomes; 

improved experience for health practitioners and patients; 

greater system and payment efficiencies; and

higher quality of care.

What solution could you come up, working in a team with the help of mentors, experts, and access to data?  Participate in Hacking Health and find out!
