Deadline: Pandemic Response Hackathon
March 29, 2020
The Pandemic Response Hackathon is a virtual hackathon aimed at better understanding and mitigating the spread of COVID-19 and future pandemics. Our goal is to bring public health professionals alongside the technology community’s talent to contribute to the world’s response to the pandemic. Hackathon projects will be formulated and judged by an interdisciplinary panel of public health, health IT, and policy experts.
Our goal is to bring public health professionals alongside the technology community’s talent to contribute to the world’s response to this and future pandemics. There are many different ways to respond to COVID-19, but for health technologists, rapidly building great health technology is what we know how to do. COVID-19 has already caused enormous suffering around the globe. While we’re not doctors or government officials, we want to use the skills we do have to ensure that the crisis doesn’t go to waste.
Datavant is convening the hackathon, in collaboration with the U.S. Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC), the American Public Health Association, Komodo Health, Prognos, Mapbox, and Immuta.
You can start by searching for teammates in the hackathon slack channel. We also encourage you to recruit friends & colleagues.
We are currently curating a large number of ideas from our advisors, partners, and customers, including current and former government officials, health policy leaders, academics and researchers. Ideas will be posted to the landing page as they come in & we encourage you to submit your own!
Deadline: 12:00pm PDT Mar 29, 2020
