Innovating around medical technology
Hackathons are a design sprint-like event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers, project managers, and others, often including subject-matter-experts, collaborate intensively on software projects. The Atlanta Medical Hackathon brings business, technology, and medical professionals together to solve problems within the medical industry by combining the knowledge base of different specialties in an innovative environment.
The inaugural Atlanta Medical Hackathon is meant to bring medical professionals into the normal hackathon flow. By bringing in medical professionals (and students) to the hackathon, it allows for subject matter experts and possible end users to have direct input and work in the solution creation process.
