Hacking Health Toronto

Hacking Health Toronto @MaRS is a platform that enables creative collaboration of healthcare practitioners with technology experts, entrepreneurs, and mentors over a weekend. The hackathon acts as a catalyst to rapidly build and test prototypes to solve pressing healthcare challenges.

Using web, mobile, and even hardware technologies, participants create, reiterate, validate, and pivot—making this experimental process as low risk as possible for everyone involved.

What to expect

Hacking Health is built on the model of the hackathon. An intensive collaborative coding event, a hackathon begins as an open platform where anyone can pitch ideas to the group. Participants decide individually on which ideas they want to work on and the resulting teams “hack” together prototypes. At the end of the marathon session, the prototypes are then demoed or presented to the entire group.

  • Friday: Pitch clinic, pitches, and team formation
