The inaugural National Health Equity Hackathon will focus on creating data-driven solutions for the underserved healthcare population.

The hackathon will be October 19 – 21 at Capital Factory in Austin, Texas and includes sponsorship support from the Institute for Diversity (IFD) of the American Hospital Association and CareSet Systems, with additional support from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the American Nurses Association, Design Institute for Health at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin, Innovation Learning Network, Socrata, and others.

Examples of these people that do not have equal access or quality of care include:

the economically disadvantaged

those affected by racial or gender disparities

infants and children

people living with chronic illness

the frail elderly

the homeless

those affected by the opioid crisis

Using open source datasets, this weekend hackathon will gather multiple tech disciplines around a common goal of eliminating health disparities. Attendees will self-select to a team with diverse perspectives.  Local and nationally-acclaimed mentors and database experts will be accessible throughout the event.

Lunch and dinner will be provided each day of the event. Parking is not included.
