Bringing innovation to health & care in the Netherlands.
Dutch Hacking Health will be organized for the fourth time in April 2019. It is an event where technology, design, entrepreneurship, healthcare and patients are brought together during a weekend. Hacking Health aims to transform healthcare by connecting teams, which usually rarely collaborate, who search for human-centric solutions to front-line healthcare problems.

Who should join?
Designers and (service) design thinkers can help to build digital & physical solutions that focus on human needs, creating the right experience for each solution based on the journeys of patients andp professionals.
A patient has the most knowledge about having & experiencing his/her disease. To work on meaningful innovations we need to have patients on board, explaining what they need and how a solution might fit in their lives.
The group that’s most familiar with hackathons. Developers are needed to help teams create their first working prototype. Using programming languages, data science or any other technical experience to realise ideas.
