Healthcare hacking

It’s about finding creative solutions to understanding real-world healthcare data and having an impact on healthcare. At the Healthcare Data Hackathon, you will get a chance to do it all, in an intense 48 hour competition.

Team up or work solo on key healthcare data sets: healthcare provider teaming networks (DocGraph), prescribing fraud detection, predicting hospital re-admissions, Medicare and FDA data sets.

Work using your own coding software, but gain knowledge about the data from experts in medicine, medical informatics, machine learning, data visualization, and more.

Get your team and register now, as spots are limited. We provide the data, breakfast and lunch, consulting experts, and a place to work. And at the end…there will be prizes.
