COVID-19 Hackathon paper published in the British Medical Journal

The results of the MedTech Foundation’s COVID-19 Innovation Response Virtual Hackathon have  been published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ).

Translate MedTech sponsored the Hackathon, which took place in April 2020, and sought to address critical health-related issues resulting from COVID-19.

One hundred and twenty three potential innovators – 64 academics, 38 medical students, 12 industry representatives and 9 NHS doctors – gathered online to address challenge topics ranging from hospital care and public health to health education and digital training. They were split into multidisciplinary project teams, and successfully generated 12 unique solution concepts by the end of the virtual hackathon.
