Help Build the Next Generation of EM Solutions

Join us for HackED! - a forum for discovery and innovation at a hackathon event during ACEP22!

Presented in conjunction with Stanford University StEMI X innovators, the ACEP Emergency Medicine Data Institute and ACEP’s Health IT Committee, HackED! can help solve your most pressing emergency medicine problems.

Harness the power of emergency medicine problem-solving with the technical know-how of proven innovators.

We’re near Silicon Valley, the high-tech hub of the San Francisco Bay Area. Let’s lean into that proximity and leverage some EM innovation during ACEP22.

Sign Up & Hack Away

HackED! Basics

  • Any ACEP22 registered attendees can sign up
  • HackED! is free for ACEP22 attendees to participate
  • Showcased on the floor of the ACEP22 Exhibit Hall at Moscone Convention Center
  • Choose one of these use cases to problem-solve (see more below):
    • Wearable Health Data
    • Hospital at Home
    • Health Care Surveillance Tools
  • For two-and-a-half days, 12 teams of up to 8 diverse experts will work on impactful, practical EM solutions.
  • Concepts and works-in-progress can be viewed each day.
  • All ACEP22 attendees can provide feedback as the teams work on their solutions.
  • Prizes will be awarded from a panel of judges.

More About the Use Cases

After signing up for a specific use case, you will be connected with your team and are encouraged to start working on your solution even prior to ACEP22.

Team members, representing subject matter expertise across clinical and technical domains, will receive information that describes the problem, relevant literature, and any resources (such as data or an example app) that may be helpful.

Teams will be self-governed and are responsible for coordinating their workflows and schedules. Coaches will be made available for each team onsite.

Wearable Health Data

Mainstream adoption of personal wearables has led to large numbers of patients are collecting massive amounts of personal health data. When these patients utilize acute care services, it is unclear how the data might be useful to the individual’s care.

Examples might include:

  • Concerning rhythm strip from an Apple watch
  • Low oxygen read from a home O2 saturation monitor
  • Mood levels from a smartphone app

Hospital at Home

Hospital at Home (H@H) is an emerging trend for patients who require inpatient care but will receive it in their home. This trend will directly affect the discharge process for patients, as many H@H admissions may come from ED visits. Emergency physicians may be involved in the care of the H@H patients, as their expertise involves observation medicine and treatment of acute care issues.

Health Care Surveillance Tools

Surveillance work by emergency physicians is still done through individual effort. That approach misses opportunities for identifying critical, evolving information that could result in poor outcomes.

Examples might include:

  • Infectious and emerging diseases
  • Response to treatments
  • Substance abuse
  • Environmental toxicities

More About the Competition

HackED! will be judged by a mix of five physician leaders, innovators, informaticists, and technical experts. On the last day of the hackathon, the judges and audience will hear members of the teams pitch their solutions, which do not have to be a finished product, only compelling and supported.

Judges Criteria

  • Feasibility/Viability
  • Impact
  • Progress

Important Participant Information

  • Bring your own devices
  • Engagement > Skills
  • If your plans change and you cannot attend or cannot fully commit, let ACEP know as soon as possible
