Calling all designers & developers!

We need your help to bring technology and healthcare together in order to improve health outcomes in our communities.

On June 26th CBI Health Group and Health and Technology District sponsored a pre-hackathon session where health leaders discussed imminent and priority challenges around complex care in the community. Topics discussed include: Navigation/coordination, Caregiver burn-out, reduction in hospital visits, providing more care in the home. We want to take these discussions to the next level and need your help to do so!

We’re hosting a hackathon to help explore and push these ideas further. Come join us to help realize solutions that could have real and significant impact on the day to day lives for others. Join us on October 12th and 13th to hack for a good cause, by hacking for health.
