Inventathon...But what is it?

Inventathon is a competition to create and pitch the best solution to a given medical need. The end product of our hackathons can be an app, device, website, conceptual drawing, or anything else that exemplifies the concept. Clinicians, Academics, and Technical Mentors will provide mentorship in areas such as device design, reimbursement, strategy, software development, and presentation. Judges will review the products and award $5,000 to the winning team. 

Our March 2017 hackathon will be our fourth Inventathon (!) and we absolutely love putting it on. Every time we do, we strive to provide a fun environment that encourages innovation in healthcare as well as plant the early seeds of entrepreneurship. We all have to start somewhere. Come start with us!

...And the Focus is?

The day before Inventathon kicks off (specifically March 3rd, 2017), we email our participants with a needs list as well as provide resources that allows our participants a hands-on exploration of opportunities to use Artificial Intelligence and/or Automation and related technologies to improve healthcare.

With the advent of increasing availability of big data, computing power, open API’s and machine learning tools, what was once considered science fiction is now available today. Our parents are always telling us that we're living in the future so how cool would it be if we made more of what they believed to be impossible possible?

So just for the weekend of March 4th and 5th, 2017, you’ll have the opportunity to explore first-hand the following example applications with all of us:

  • Machine Learning for risk prediction & intervention

  • Deep Learning for drug discovery

  • Computer Vision for medical image interpretation

  • Chatbots for customer service

  • Intelligent Virtual Agents as care managers

  • Robots for hospital automation

  • Speech Recognition & Natural Language Processing to support caregivers
