Got an idea for a health app or medical device? Want to join 250 creative American and Canadian professionals from the Health and IT sectors in a weekend of inspiring and innovative cross-border collaboration?
WEtech Alliance, TechTown Detroit and EPICentre invite you to register for the 2nd Annual Hacking Health Windsor Detroit, which takes place at the Toldo Health Education Centre at the University of Windsor from May 13-15, 2016.
Last year, the inaugural Hacking Health was held at TechTown and featured doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, programmers, designers, investors, students and the just plain curious.
More than 20 ideas were pitched and over $30,000 in prizes were awarded.
“It is energizing to be around so many creative and collaborative professionals,” says Yvonne Pilon, President and CEO of WEtech Alliance.
The first Hacking Health brought together 30 partners including Henry Ford Hospital, Wayne State University, University of Michigan, Microsoft, University of Windsor, St. Clair College, Windsor Regional Hospital, Hotel-Dieu Grace Hospital and Leamington District Memorial Hospital.
“We are building a real cross-border community of health care innovation,” says Paul Riser, Director of Technology Based Entrepreneurship at TechTown Detroit.
The University of Windsor is also excited to serve as this year’s Canadian host.
“We want to be at the frontline of innovation, which fundamentally requires building bridges between disciplines like Health and IT as well as between our cross-border communities” says Dr. K.W. Michael Siu, Vice-President of Research and Innovation at the University of Windsor. “Hacking Health naturally builds upon our strengths and assets”.
