Chicago Health 2.0 Conference, May 16 – 18

Chicago Health Tech and Health 2.0 is collaborating with the City of Chicago Public Health Department, HHS Office of the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology (ONC) IL State Governor’s Office of Health Innovation and Transformation (GOHIT), higi, Walgreens, and DIVVY to host a Make-a-thon.

What’s a Make-a-thon?
A make-a-thon is an event where interdisciplinary teams get together to make things. We’ll be posting specific problems in healthcare that need an innovation kickstart, and that will continue to mature past this event.

The make-a-thon will center on several challenges:

  • Design better products and solutions in healthcare
  • Create interesting data mesh-ups with healthcare, wellness, and location data
  • Hack code with healthcare subject matter experts to build practical proofs of concepts
  • Take your existing tech products, and apply it to a different healthcare problem
