OHSU Invent-a-thon Details

Want to make healthcare better?

OHSU is joining forces with MIT Hacking Medicine and academic and industry partners from across the region to bring you the inaugural OHSU Invent-a-thon, a virtual health hackathon, October 23 – 25, 2020.   

Our engaging virtual event will bring together hundreds of creative problem solvers and thoughts leaders from across disciplines and geographic boundaries to build community and tackle pressing healthcare challenges. 

Join us as we work to build innovative medtech and digital health/health IT solutions in 1) surgical care, 2) early disease diagnosis, 3) rural and low resource setting healthcare, and 4) management of chronic conditions.  

This event is also an opportunity for teams to focus on solutions that address healthcare disparities within these areasincluding those that have been brought on or exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

If you are healthcare professional, engineer, maker, researcher, entrepreneur, business expert, designer, developer, student, or patient who is interested in advancing healthcare and improving our ability to address healthcare disparities and respond to future crises then this is the weekend for you.  

You will have a chance to hear from inspiring keynotes, join an interdisciplinary team of fellow innovation enthusiasts, brainstorm and build a solution, receive coaching from mentors, talk with our sponsors, and pitch a solution to investor judges to compete for up to $40,000 in team prizes.
