Event description
The WA Data Science Innovation Hub is pleased to announce its first Medical Datathon event.

About this Event

The WA Medical Datathon 2020, delivered in partnership with AWS, Telethon Kids Institute and MTPConnect WA Life Sciences Innovation Hub, will bring together people working across a wide range of industries to explore how data analysis and digital technology could revolutionise patient care.

It will include four Collaboration Sessions held over two weekends in November where participants will work in multidisciplinary teams to explore data science driven solutions to healthcare challenges. The sessions will kick off with a launch event on Friday 6th November.

Do I need to be a data scientist to participate?

You don't need to have technical data science skills to participate in the Datathon. To develop smart, patient-centric solutions we need subject matter experts, innovators, design thinkers and data scientists working together.

We will be specifically curating teams for the Weekend Collaboration Sessions based on bringing together a diverse group of people with different skills and experiences. Each team will be led by a clinician to ensure solutions are clinically guided.

Introductory Webinar

We will be holding an Introductory Webinar on 21st October 2020 to provide more information on the Datathon. The webinar will be led by WADSIH with speakers from across industry presenting on the need for digital technologies and data science to the healthcare system.
