Don’t miss Hacking Health - UC Berkeley’s hackathon focused on digital health!
Imagine changing how we care for our health with tools that motivate people to stay healthy, help patients and doctors connect, or predict who will get sick so we can care for them proactively.
We invite you to work towards a more connected and transparent digital health ecosystem at UC Berkeley’s second annual Hacking Health – September 21-22, 2012, at UC Berkeley’s Skydeck accelerator. You’ll be amazed at what can be built in a day!
Last year, solutions from the event included personalized health forecasting leveraging Practice Fusion’s research database, mobile therapeutics for tinnitus, streamlined PHR access for trauma centers, simplified advance directives, chronic disease online communities, concierge medical tourism, integrated hospital capital equipment solutions, and more.

This year, you’ll join professionals and students of all stripes – coders, builders, designers, marketeers, health experts and clinicians — from across the UC Berkeley and UC San Francisco campuses and the Bay Area community. Design, build and pitch solutions in 24 hours or less. You bring the talent, the passion, and the need for change. We’ll bring the rest.
Friday Afternoon: Optional inspiration and ideas from CITRIS, design firms, startups that have made it and VCs that have watched many crash and burn (and have helped a few succeed).

Come prepared with your 60-second elevator pitch! Teams will form on Friday evening.
Saturday: All-day coding / designing / building.
Saturday @6:00pm: All-star judging panel will review team creations.
