Selecting a challenge

WA Health Hackathon Week

What to consider when selecting a challenge

Together with our partners, we have been working with WA-based clinicians, medical researchers and healthcare practitioners to identify and define real-world challenges to be included in the WA Health Hackathon. We’ve received a wide range of healthcare challenges, with potential solutions in the application of predictive analytics, natural language processing, automation, digitization and data visualisation.

When you register to participate in the Health Hackathon, you must select a preferred healthcare challenge. Each challenge requires different types of skill sets, so check the challenge type before you pick a challenge to make sure you capabilities align. In addition, some challenges come with specialised datasets provided by the Challenge Owner, while others rely on open source data.
