#HEALTHHACKATHON19

Let’s envisage the year 2025: by that time, digitization will finally have penetrated all areas of the health market - including medical technology, pharma, medical and nursing services, hospital management, payor services, public health, and many more. What will be the solutions which ensure better patient outcomes and the reduction of the workload of healthcare workers? XPOMET Medicinale is making a major contribution to progress. From 10 to 12 October 2019, innovators from multiple disciplines will work together in an open atmosphere to develop solutions geared towards filling real needs. Organizers are welcoming topics ("challenges") with both a global as well as local approaches, including telemedicine and machine learning, applications based on patient data with the use of artificial intelligence, Blockchain, and data analytics. Other applications might be in the areas of legally binding documentation of security audits of medical systems and creating decentralized structures and/or the integration of Distributed Ledger Technology into the backends of hospital systems. Organizers expect to see solutions focusing on inpatient and outpatient care but also on connected care for the elderly and chronically ill in community and rural settings.
