Description

Vibewire's Hack4Health is a fantastic opportunity to not only create discussion around current issues within the health industry but to work with industry experts to solve some of these issues, with the potential to make a huge impact on the future of Australia's health industry.

But why is Health important?

To put it simply, our health is important! Whist healthcare is a basic human right, some individuals may fall between the cracks.

In Australia, healthcare providers have solved many of the problems surrounding acute pain and disease. The new struggle is ensuring that those with chronic diseases are cared for and offered services to improve their quality of life.

Problem Statements:

- Pain Management & The Opioid Crisis: To change perceptions around opioid use for pain management, in a world where prescription medications are used a ‘quick fix’ as opposed to addressing psychological and social aspects of pain perception.

- Disability Support & Value Based Care: To support disability service providers (DSP’s) to better manage the transactional side of care support, to allow them to focus on providing better service delivery.

- Social Inclusion Amongst the Ageing Population: To create a solution that motivates seniors to become more active and positively engaged within their communities as social isolation is a major contributor to health problems for senior Australians.
