Hackathons for inventing the future

The hackathon (FR) is one of the events organised by HUG’s brand new innovation centre. It involves trying to come up with innovative solutions for healthcare issues within a given time frame.

In May 2017, HUG organised its first hackathon in partnership with La Poste and IBM and a second in November with imad. They brought together some 200 participants focused on 17 challenges.

A number of interesting ideas emerged, such as Dupond-Dupont, a tool for better identifying patients with similar names, and HUG @ Home, an app that offers a remote medical consultation by videoconference.
