Providers, patients, and anyone else who’s experienced U.S. healthcare knows: There are far more problems ailing our broken system than people stepping up to fix it. But here at More Disruption Please, we’re on a mission to change that, and we need industry veterans and healthcare “newbies” alike to join the fight—combining deep industry knowledge with fresh ideas to unbreak healthcare.
With the More Disruption Please network of over 6,000 entrepreneurs, healthcare professionals, venture capitalists, and industry disruptors, we make it our business to ensure that innovative ideas get heard. We want yours to be next. Join us November 5th—6th at athenahealth headquarters in Watertown, MA for the 7th annual More Disruption Please Hackathon.
Our hackathons are designed to bring together smart, forward-thinkers to develop solutions that will deliver value to providers, patients, and the broader healthcare ecosystem. Hackers from all disciplines, skill levels, and geographies will unite to design solutions to the industry’s most pressing pain points—no experience required! So if you're an engineer, entrepreneur, physician, designer, scientist, patient, or just interested in using your skills to drive change, we want you. You’ll spend 48 hours working in teams to bring your ideas to life and build solutions that will challenge the status quo in health IT.
With access to the athena developer portal and expert mentors to guide them along the way, hackers will develop new cloud-based applications for athenahealth’s treasure trove of health data. The event will culminate with a presentation to a panel of judges and a shot at the grand prize: a $3,000 check for the winning team to carry their innovation to the next stage of development.
Wondering how much you can get accomplished in 48 hours? The hackers behind “Hemolabs” at our Austin hackathon event—Nathan Wong, Heather Benoit, and Dan Yee—made it look easy as they combined backgrounds in product development to design a simple serum analytics testing platform to monitor blood health in patients with chronic atrial fibrillation.
So whether you’ve got wicked clinical, technical, or business skills, or just want to combine forces with some likeminded hackers, join us this weekend and do your part to help make healthcare work the way it should. Register here.
