The Challenge

This is an invite only event which policy makers, hospital administrators and senior executives at a global life science company has visibility with a high degree of interest in the outcome of this event.

The challenge is to apply your knowledge and experience to extract a set of defined clinical features from a small complicated corpus of unstructured anonymized clinical notes.

The candidate with the best results will receive a new IPAD. The winner of the hackathon will have the opportunity to network one-on-one with one of Canada’s most successful health care venture capitalist as well as senior leaders from one of the largest health care companies in the world.



Why it matters

There is a growing recognition in the healthcare community among clinicians, researchers, key opinion leaders, and administrators that the overwhelming majority of meaningful evidence required to practice Evidence Based Medicine is trapped in large repositories of electronically inaccessible unstructured documents which include clinical notes, transcription text, lab tests, and diagnostic & pathology reports.

A small number of major healthcare providers, research institutions and Life Science organizations have the large budgets required to pay for manual chart analysis and data extractions, but the process is not only expensive, it is time consuming, inconsistent, and does not capture the true reality of real world patient populations.

The results are:

  • The most vulnerable patients with the highest mortality rates are the patients we know the least about.
  • We do not fully understand treatment decisions and outcomes of patient populations who are not included in clinical studies and trials – this represents 90% of patients in the real world.
  • People are dying who may not have to be.


What you will do

  1. We will provide you with a corpus of unstructured anonymized clinical notes.
  2. We will ask you to apply your knowledge and experience to extract a set of defined clinical features from the notes.
