Event Information

What is the "Texas Healthcare Challenge"?

image146

Our aim is to bring together a diverse set of people with various backgrounds and empower them to work together and find solutions. This event employs a creative method to solve challenges: teams are instructed to use design thinking to create changes, solve problems, and potentially build new healthcare ventures.


This is the essence of “hackathon-based” healthcare innovation:

Take a problem, break it down, find root-causes, gather key players.  Build up a solution to the problem.  Iterate and optimize to make it better.

Who's Invited?

Medical students, faculty, doctors, patients, nurses, researchers, engineers, software developers, graphic designers, entrepreneurs, insurance specialists, policymakers, scientists, corporate managers, CIOs, and innovation teams.

Why Now?

 We are excited about bringing this event to North Texas and recognize the great impact these “challenges” and “hackathons” have to foster innovative thinking and solutions in the healthcare community. 


 Four months ago, we saw a 2012 MIT healthcare hackathon graduate, PillPack, get purchased by Amazon for $1 Billion.
