We are currently looking for real healthcare challenges to be explored during WA Health Hackathon Week 2021, and we’ve extended the deadline to Friday 25th June.

WA Health Hackathon Week will bring together a diverse group of data professionals and students to explore innovative digital and data-driven solutions to real world healthcare challenges. Teams will take part in a range of upskilling/training sessions and develop prototype solutions for specific healthcare challenges, applying techniques such as data analysis & visualisation, machine learning, and digitisation.

Submitting a Healthcare Challenge
Challenges can be put forward by WA-based clinicians, medical researchers, provider organisations, academia, government, and industry.

Each challenge submitted for the Hackathon must have a clearly defined problem and an assigned domain expert. The assigned domain expert must be available for a minimum of 30 minutes during the week leading up to the weekend Hackathon (16 – 20 August 2021) for a Q&A session with the team assigned to work on their challenge. This can be done virtually or in-person.

WADSIH and our event partners will also work with individuals submitting challenges to identify and access datasets necessary for prototyping during the Hackathon.

If you need support in defining your challenge, or you’d like to discuss your challenge’s eligibility, please reach out to the WADSIH team,
