A healthcare hackathon is an event in which people with diverse perspectives such as clinicians, engineers, designers, software developers, business people, and patients come together in an intense, fun-filled, three-day weekend to develop solutions that could address challenges facing healthcare today. Participants will form teams, collaborate within a limited time frame, and focus on a specific problem or idea in healthcare to come up with innovative ideas and solutions.
This year, Yale School of Medicine's Center for Biomedical Innovation and Technology is partnering with 4Catalyzer to engage the community in a hackathon focused on understanding the ways in which artificial intelligence may enable new practices in medicine. Specifically, there will be three tracks:
Point of Care Diagnostics and Therapeutics -- What if we could receive and visualize data from imaging technologies and point of care diagnostics in a repetitive and reliable fashion?
Serial imaging data in a "just-in-time" fashion -- 4Catalyzer has an ultrasound with remarkable portability and reliability. What can it be used for if you can get “just-in-time" results?
Telemedicine and teleradiology -- Given the availability of securely harboring data in the cloud, what does it mean for patients to own and access their data, anytime, anywhere?
