(****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!
