Following many grueling hours spent developing solutions, teams must present their work to a panel of judges with brief pitches. Each team is judged according to criteria set by the organizers and judges of the hackathon. These criteria vary by hackathon, but usually include the final presentation itself, the potential to make a real impact in healthcare and the economic feasibility of the technology. For example, CAMTech uses five criteria to judge presentations: the healthcare impact of the project, how technically disruptive it is, the business model of the project, the final presentation itself, and if the team is well-balanced and has people from a variety of backgrounds.
