Forge Health Innovation Challenge 2015

April 10, 2015 - April 12, 2015

Invent the future of healthcare.

Forge’s Health Innovation Challenge is the marquee healthcare hackathon in the southeast. Participants have 36 hours to build and pitch solutions to real problems facing healthcare during an intense, non-stop, innovation sprint. Teams get access to collaborative work space, software, APIs, as well experts and thought leaders as mentors.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Anyone and everyone with a passion for radically improving healthcare through technology. We welcome students (undergraduate, graduate, professional), post-docs, full-time professionals (engineers, clinicians, faculty/professors, accountants, lawyers, etc.), business, industry and non-profit representatives, federal (VA) employees and staff.

WHY THE VA?

The Department of Veterans Affairs operates the nation’s largest integrated health care system, with over 1,700 sites of care serving nearly 9 millions Veterans each year. Since 2010, the VA has worked to identify, test, and evaluate new approaches to the agency’s most pressing challenges, and in doing so has created new opportunities to rapidly develop and test new technologies to improve care for Veterans. Enter the Health Innovation Challenge!

I’M NOT A SOFTWARE DEVELOPER, CAN I STILL ATTEND?

Yes! We’re recommend creating diverse teams that give the greatest chance of building an amazing product or idea. Everyone is invited: engineers, clinicians, scientists, designers, marketing/PR, and business professionals.

IS TRAVEL SUPPORT AVAILABLE?

Yes! Forge is excited to partner with Delta Air Lines to offer a limited number of free round-trip airfare tickets to qualifying applicants traveling from outside the state of Georgia and who request assistance. Priority will be given to college or university students.
