Using Big data and Real-World Evidence

The Center for Biomedical Innovation and Technology (CBIT) healthcare hackathon is an event in which people with diverse perspectives such as clinicians, engineers, designers, software developers, business people, and patients come together in an intense, fun-filled, three-day weekend to develop and build solutions that could address challenges facing healthcare today.

Participants will form teams, collaborate within a limited time frame, and focus on a specific problem or idea in healthcare to come up with innovative ideas and solutions. This year the tracks are:

             Medical Sensors & IoT                                   Clinical Trials
                                                                

             Economic Forecoasting                     Epidemiology & Disease Modeling
