WHO WE ARE
Founded in 2012, HACKING HEALTH’s mission is to improve and accelerate innovation and digital technology development in the healthcare sector. We believe this can happen by connecting healthcare professionals and patients with designers, developers, innovators and entrepreneurs to build realistic, human-centric solutions to front-line healthcare problems.
Our movement is made of chapters, each of them building communities of practice connecting the tech, industry and healthcare sectors, and organizing creative events and programs to foster collaboration between these key actors.
We build partnerships with major healthcare institutions and enterprises across Canada and internationally: HACKING HEALTH is known for its action-oriented approach to foster faster and better innovation in regions and organizations worldwide.
HACKING HEALTH is a grassroots, volunteer-based, unconventional organization that achieves impact through a very creative, collaborative, bottom-up, community-centered approach. It is now looking to achieve a new level of impact, building on its unique DNA.
Foster innovative digital health ecosystems.
Engage and inspire its stakeholders.
Support the development of human-centric solutions.
HACKING HEALTH is a mindset, not a skillset.
All members are considered valuable contributors, regardless of the expertise and experience that they have to offer.
Hackathons are a collective activity that transcend individual agendas to give a voice to all sector stakeholders. HACKING HEALTH’s desire is to drive impact, to focus on more action and less talk.
We engage diverse stakeholders both inside and outside the health sector to look at healthcare challenges from a variety of perspectives to bring fresh insights and build new, innovative solutions.
We favour rapid, iterative development of solutions in a manner that creates the shortest feedback loop between users and creators.
