Health 2.0 Code-a-thons are live events that bring together top developers, designers, health care professionals and entrepreneurs to prototype innovative applications and tools to foster health and wellness.
Starting in 2010, we’ve helped teams assemble quickly around challenges and datasets to create magic. Participants eagerly garner insights from one another, speakers, and sponsors about datasets, APIs, and potential directions. Within 36 hours, teams have developed a concept and prototype. They pitch their prototypes to their peers and panels of expert judges. Our prizes, money and more, go to the best of the best.
For participants, code-a-thons are always a great way to meet like-minded innovators and sharpen skills under pressure. In a number of cases, these team go on to build their next venture around their early prototypes. Sponsor companies have gone on to work with teams to develop new products and discover new talent. See of one our most recent teams’ new venture here!

Your task is to develop something meaningful. Solutions can be as a straightforward as a web/mobile app and as complex as software for an existing wearable device. Your solution may utilize information available from any number of sources but what matters most is the idea behind the tool.
Here’s what you’ll need to create to bring your idea to life:
Text description of the app or tool, including the need it meets and proposal for implementation (500 words or less)
Slide deck describing the application (10 slides or less in PDF format)
Wireframes or similar design layout
Functional prototype (for extra credit)
