Event description

Description

In an era of Connectedness, we still face rising tides of loneliness, need for authentic connection through our life course and the challenge of preserving vitality. Clinicians, Carers, Consumers and Policymakers are navigating their way through the maze of technology changes + challenges, but need help sorting signal from noise, fact from fiction, progression from stasis and decay.

During our event, we're getting teams to focus on one of our Challenge Topics:

  1. HackCare to transform palliative + end of Life Care

  2. HackMyCondition for Chronic Disease Management

  3. HackLoneliness for better Mental Health care and connectedness

Our Solvathon experience at the University of Newcastle will give early career exposure and cross-disciplinary design experiences to ICT, Design, Business and Health students, informed and shaped by experienced clinicians, consumers and carers on contemporary healthcare issues. Their challenge is to design + develop 1st generation technical prototypes or outline a concept to address a healthcare problem with targeted use of contemporary technology. In doing so, our event attendees will develop a strong working understanding of the challenges, constraints and possibilities in an intensive crucible of health+tech curiosity. We're also inviting remote interaction with our teams, asking you to Pitch, Select and Connect on ideas from 7pm on Fri 15Sept2017.

Teams will work together to see what can be cooked up with the right ingredients of our 5CFocus: Care, Clinical Skills+Experience, Connectedness, Creativity and Cutting Edge technology. Our event winners will be eligible for a range of cash and in-kind incentives from local companies.
