Event description
A weekend devoted to solving important medical research and healthcare problems. HealthHack is the junction of tech, open source and health.

About this Event

HealthHack will be providing free childcare to all those who need it. You don't need to order tickets for kids; just order for yourself and tell us how many kids you are bringing in the ordering process.

HealthHack is a product-building event that runs from a Friday evening through to Sunday. Teams work on problems that have been submitted by Problem Owners - typically medical researchers, medical organisations, hospitals or government— but they could come from anyone who has a health-related problem they want to solve. Find more at the website.

Check out this year's problems to solve on the website (more coming very soon!).

See what happened last year (and follow to see what happens this year!) on our YouTube, Linkedin and Twitter.

We have 3 types of tickets, please choose carefully as this helps us with final catering numbers. Full weekend doesn't mean you have to stay for the entire weekend, life is busy after all, it just indicates you are most likely to be there for all the meals.

Please order one ticket per adult as it helps with our planning when we are collecting information.

  • Full weekend - childcare needed. ADULT TICKET (you will be able to give your childcare requirements in the ordering process)
  • Full weekend
  • Observer - Friday & Sunday nights only

OUR MISSION

HealthHack is national event that helps medical researchers, health professionals and students find solutions to their important problems. Domain experts are invited to pitch their ideas to talented hackers who form into small groups around each idea based on their interests and skills. Each expert works closely with their group for 48 hours in a friendly and productive environment before presenting their masterpiece on the final night.

Everyone is welcome to participate in HealthHack. We understand the importance of cross-disciplinary networks and relationships and we believe that working in diverse groups encourages cross pollination of ideas and the development of innovative new solutions. HealthHack provides an opportunity to spend time with people who are passionate about health and medical research, education, science, software development, engineering and design.

For researchers and healthcare professionals, HealthHack can help you to create a proof of concept for a particular idea, to reimagine an existing concept or to create something truly inspiring.

For hackers, it's a great opportunity to hone your skills and make new connections, to work directly on interesting problems with domain experts, and to gain a deeper understanding of healthcare and medical research.

HealthHack is an event run under the auspices of Linux Australia and has been held annually since its inception in 2013.

Everything made at HealthHack is open source and made available for anyone else to use. You can find every project from every HealthHack at our GitHub.
