Event description
Are you interested in transforming pediatric healthcare delivery? Join us for Valley Children's first ever Pediatric Hackathon.

About this Event

A hackathon is a three-day event in which we bring together clinicians, physicians, engineers, data scientists, designers and entrepreneurs together to “hack” or quickly create disruptive solutions for pediatric healthcare. Virtual Hackathons are the same, except they are conducted using video conferencing.

We invite you to participate in Valley Children's Pediatric Virtual Hackathon: Rethinking Pediatric Healthcare: Innovations for our “New Normal.” You'll join a multidisciplinary team and work together to solve problems you face every day. The only requirement is that you bring your problem-solving spirit and an open mind.

Hackathon participants will start on Friday evening, listening to problem statements pitched by their fellow participants, self-select into teams based on the problem they are most interested in solving, work through the weekend with their newly formed team to create a solution and pitch their solution to a panel of expert judges on Sunday who will award prizes to the top three teams. Cash prizes will be awarded. All teams will also have an opportunity to enter their solutions into the Innovation Lab's commercialization process.

So, if you are passionate about a specific issue related to our new normal during and on the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic, or are interested in working with fellow problem solvers on solutions to problems we face in our "new normal," join us for this Hackathon!

We will be utilizing Microsoft Teams as our video conferencing platform however you will not have to have MS Teams installed on your device to participate. 3 weeks prior to the Hackathon, everyone who has completed registration will receive a link with instructions on how to join along with other important details about the Hackathon.
