Digital Health Hack (with Green Templeton College)

(****NB, dates now confirmed as 12/13 July****)

It's great to announce that we're teaming up with Green Templeton College to put on our first Digital Health Hack.  It's a two day event, to be held in the Launchpad at the Said Business School.  It kicks off on Saturday 12th July at 10.30am, 'til late, and then starts again on Sunday 13th July at 9am, with presentations at 3pm and finishing with a drinks reception at 4pm.  


There is no charge to join in, all food and drinks will be provided, and it's open to anyone interested in digital health.  Teams can be made up beforehand, else created on the day, and we'll help provide some ideas.  This hack will have a focus on Global Health, Patient Experience, Care, Ageing, and Management in Medicine.  We will also have a  Clinicans' Challenge and Patients' Challenge, although you're free to decide what you'd like to work on.  There will be mentors to help advise and guide, and an expert panel to judge the projects at the end. 


As well as people, ideas and enthusiasm, we also have some hardware for teams to use, including an couple of Raspberry Pi/Arduino, an Oculus Rift (courtesy of Incuna) and a Google Glass (courtesy of James Williams, a DPhil candidate at OII and Balliol).


Huge thanks go to Green Templeton College, through Dr. Alexander Finlayson and the Future Ageing program, and also to The Oxford Launchpad for their help with putting this event on.  Whether you're a designer, developer, clinician, patient, researcher, engineer, student, professor, patient, entrepreneur, or otherwise want to participate, help or find out more, please sign up and join in!

    This is one of the best hackathon, I have attended, very good atmosphere, environment. I really like the idea, to build something useful for digital health. Team are competitive in a nice way.

    Thanks for all the great comments everyone. Delighted that everyone had such a great time, and I certainly did too. Thanks again to all the hard work behind the scenes from so many people, in organising, mentoring, judging, loaning hardware, catering etc., and especially to everyone who participated over the weekend, taking the time on a very lovely summer weekend. The ideas, energy, passion and creativity in the room were more than I had hoped for, and the fantastic presentations of some brilliant work were a testament to everyone's talents, collaboration and hard work. I'll be in touch with all the teams with feedback from the judges, and also will be putting details and photos from the weekend up on the (new) website which I'll be launching later this week.

    Really looking forward to putting the next one on!

    Brilliant - some really innovative people and even better ideas - we'll need to hold on to some to the ideas for future hacks I'll have a look at ways of doing this...

    Yes. Thanks Richie, it's easy to underestimate how much work actually goes in to organising events like this. Well done for making it happen. Great to meet everyone, and I'm really looking forward to the next one. I've already got some more ideas for projects that may or may not involve the use of power tools.

    Is it any skill level of developer are welcome? or the developer would need to have specific skill. e.g. IOS/ Android / web skill..etc? Also does it have any dataset/ api, which we could have a look before hand?

    July 8, 2014

    • Richie H.

      Hi Chi, yes, you can come along whatever your skill set/level. We'll be starting on Saturday with pitches for ideas and team formation, and so people can create teams with complementary skills. The weekend is aimed at working together, coming up with ideas and solutions, but also learning new skills from different people. There is also a Trello board (www.trello.com) where people have started to put their skills/interests, project ideas, and datasets. If you email me richieharrington {at} ymail [dot] com, I can add you to that board.

    Hi all,

    Thank you to everyone who has signed up for the Digital Health Hack, it's great to see the enthusiasm. However, unfortunately we've had to postpone it for a few weeks.

    Unfortunately I can't make this event, but if anyone wants any pointers on open spatial data, satellite imagery, open source mapping software etc that might be useful for the hack you have planned, then I'd be happy to provide advice beforehand where I can.

    May 1, 2014

    • Richie H.

      Thanks Graham, sorry you can't make it, but that's very generous of you to offer. I'll drop you an email.
