Hackathon 2015

ACEP and EMRA have teamed up with Hacking Medicine at MIT and athenahealth to offer a problem-solving hackathon during ACEP15. The Hackathon leverages out-of-the-box thinkers for an amped-up, all weekend, problem solving session where emergency medicine physicians collaborate with computer programmers, engineers, and other subject matter experts to tackle challenges in EM.

The Hackathon will begin on Friday evening, October 23 at the beautiful athenahealth headquarters, 311 Arsenal St., Watertown, MA , just before the ACEP15 annual meeting in Boston. Participants will work (hack) thorough the weekend and judges will decide the winners on Sunday, October 25.

Prizes and cash awards will be provided and the Grand Prize winner will be invited to present their solution during the ACEP15 annual meeting at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center on Monday, October 26.

Stayed tuned for more information about how to register and for more specific details regarding the healthcare challenges teams can work on!
