Judging will be done in three rounds:

Round One:
A one-on-one session between the team presenting its solution, and the judges from the Challenge sponsor for whom the solution was developed (e.g., Challenge sponsor “x” will judge team submissions for their/its challenge). Each sponsoring company will select its two finalists to advance to Round 2.

Round Two:
The top 16 teams, two from each sponsoring company, will present in the HLTH General Session Ballroom, with full A/V support, in front of our panel of judges. The presentations will be open to all HLTH attendees.

Round Three:
The winning team will join HLTH’s General Session Kickoff on the Main Stage presenting the HackHLTH award winners in front of investors, media and other stakeholders from the healthcare ecosystem.

Impact (5 points): Does the solution have real and/or applicable value?

Creativity (5 points): How innovative is the solution in response to its challenge?

Simplicity (5 points): Is the solution intuitive/easily integrated into the healthcare space?
