We are excited about bringing this event to North Texas (again!) and recognize the great impact these “challenges” and “hackathons” have to foster innovative thinking and solutions in the healthcare community.
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.
The scale of this type of event for healthcare innovation is new to our region and there's no one better than Health Wildcatters to make it happen to draw the biggest and best crowd!
Keynote talks, problem pitching, mixing, team forming, hacking, mentorship, feedback, idea iteration, pitch practice sessions, final presentations, judging panel, prize presentations - Big cash $ and in-kind prizes up for grabs!
