January 19, 2019 - Health Hackathon Presentation

Objectives

  • Demonstrate collaboration between different sectors within the healthcare ecosystem to solve problems together and leverage on cutting edge technology
  • Cultivate innovative ideas with direction from the right subject matter experts to ensure that the solution is scientifically and medically sound.
  • Be a platform where new talents can be discovered and be a congregation of diverse minds.

Malaysia is a rapidly aging population. So there is a need to focus on this population

We have identified several areas of need

  1. Delivery of care
  2. Social Connectedness
  3. Patient tools and Home Based Care

Mentor-based

You have your mentors to help you.

The full list of mentors will be made available soon.

The format of this hackathon will be a little different. We are allowing registration to start about a month before the actual presentation date. You will have access to mentors and can form teams (or look for teams to join) during this period. However, the deadline for final submission is January 12, 2019. Only shortlisted projects will be allowed to present on January 19, 2019.
