Health Hack 2018

14–16 September 2018, Brisbane

This year’s Health Hack Brisbane event is scheduled to take place over the weekend of 14–16 September.

The free data hack event will bring researchers, students and healthcare professionals together with software developers, educators, engineers, designers and other scientists to create innovative solutions to important healthcare and medical research problems.

This year’s Health Hack is in its early planning stages, and more information, including the call for participation, will be announced in the coming months.

Participation will be free, whether you bring a research problem to the table as a researcher, or donate your skills to the hack as a software developer, user experience (UX) designer, data analyst or visualiser.

QCIF/RCC/IMB eResearch Analyst Dr Nick Hamilton will once again be a "Problem Wrangler" for Health Hack, i.e. in charge of coordinating the problems to be solved.

"Health Hack is quite unique in the world of ‘hackathons’ in that it focuses on solving real-world problems brought to the hack by health professionals and researchers who need a solution. As such, many of the outcomes have been further developed well beyond Health Hack. Health Hack is a great way to network and build connections across health, IT, government and universities," said Dr Nick.

Please contact Dr Nick (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you are interested in joining Brisbane’s Health Hack as a “Problem Owner.”
