The American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM) is hosting its first 'hackathon' for preventive medicine physicians, other professionals, and non-ACPM members to design and submit innovative ideas for improving preventive medicine, public health, and healthcare systems. The Preventive Medicine DesignHack 2019 is a multi-round competition awarding monetary prizes to kickstart great ideas into actionable interventions and business ventures. Competition judges are evaluating new and innovative ideas that bridge the health continuum, connect health systems, communities, providers, and patients, and address challenges of healthcare data and interoperability.
This institute is the on-site Project Facilitation Day of the contest when applicants will hear talks on different aspects of the innovation process in the healthcare system. It provides an opportunity for attendees to discuss the innovation process with the experts from industry and start-up ecosystem. Attendance in the institute is open to all ACPM conference attendees through registration. Review the DesignHack institute's schedule of events for additional details.
