The second annual hackathon will run from Friday evening to Sunday evening. Health professionals, developers and designers will create prototypes based on challenges submitted before the event.

The idea is simple: as inspiration is the essence of creation, what's best than listening to well known and visionary physicians, entrepreneurs and philosophers to be inspired and seeing startups already innovating. Then exchanging about health data and learning about medical and technical opportunities. Finally transform all this in action by working together to create innovation and next big thing.

Health professionals and designers, developers, UX researchers and engineers expressed their expectations about topics such as: ethic, health datas, interoperability, what is the worldwide evolution of digital in healthcare ? Where are the technical limits? What are legal issues and solutions? What data exist, how to access it and use it to improve healthcare and deliver on the Big Data promise?

With Hacking Health Camp you will find answers to these questions.
