Will you accept the challenge to take on innovation in healthcare at this conference?

FIP YPG, IPSF and TPAYC, supported by Pharmapod, will co-organize the Health Hackathon for students and young professionals – an exciting opportunity to be at the forefront of digital health and innovation, starting on Wednesday 23 October, until Friday 25 October.

A hackathon is an event where computer programmers get together to design an innovative solution in a short amount of time, and nowadays, this concept has been applied to various sectors and in this case, health care! Don’t worry if you do not feel technology savvy. As everyone with different experiences is welcomed and there will be mentors and guidance by technology experts to guide you through the session on design thinking, technology, and innovation.

Participants who choose this session will be placed in groups to devise an innovative solution in addressing non communicable diseases in primary health care using digital health technological interventions over a short time frame and those ideas will be pitched to an expert panel and the winners will receive a special trophy by Pharmapod.
