Hack The Hospital
May 21 - 23, 2021Free of charge
Hack The Hospital: is an innovation lab that will explore the potential of 5G and XR technologies being applied to pediatric healthcare and to foster new connections between Barcelona and Boston hubs. International teams will develop innovative projects that can improve the hospital experience of long term pediatric patients at the Boston Children’s Hospital and the Sant Joan de Déu children’s hospital (Barcelona). We are not so interested in your capacity to code an app in 72 hours, but your ability to empathize with patients and come up with ideas that are creative and feasible.
Challenges: Education, mental health, socialization, family experience and entertainment within the hospital environment
Award: 2 winner projects will be tested and implemented in both hospitals and will be presenting at the Mobile World Congress Barcelona 2021
Dates: May 21, 22, 23 – online event
Note: We encourage people to apply in teams of 3 although individual applications are also welcome! This is a free-of-charge event and there are limited available spots.
