Join us for a panel and learn how ideas turn into projects and success stories! You can expect to hear from passionate leaders that have been obsessed with helping the healthcare sector by creating solutions to help hospitals and patients. We will learn from them that have successfully brought an idea to life to inspire you to create big for the hackathon. We will have an opportunity to ask burning questions and network.

Refreshments and snacks will be served.

All ticket proceeds go towards supporting the Health Innovation Program.

This event is part of the Health Innovation Program (#HIP613) – Ottawa’s first Health Innovation Program that aims to break down the barriers to healthcare innovation in partnership with CHEO-OCTC (Children’s hospital of Eastern Ontario/Ottawa’s Children Treatment Center). #HIP613 consists of a series of talks and hands-on workshops that will connect people, ideas and skills to build teams to tackle frontline healthcare problems at our Spring 2017 hackathon.

This café is proudly presented by our sponsor: Kivuto Solutions Inc.

What is Hacking Health Ottawa?
The big event that most people know is a fun, hands-on, intense 3-day hackathon. Here in Ottawa our goal isn’t just to organize hackathons, it’s to have long-term impact on the health system around us. We hope that these hackathon projects can be fully developed and brought to market for the benefit of communities everywhere. Hacking Health is a non-profit organization founded in Montreal in 2012. In just 4 years, the movement has spread across 21 countries, with chapters active in 45 cities, with more than 250 events and 400 volunteers which have helped facilitate over 600 new projects to improve health care.
