If you would just like to be an observer for the night (pitch/finale) you can register directly.

What is the #HIP613 Hackathon?
#HIP613 is a weekend-long hackathon that breaks down barriers to healthcare innovation. We bring together healthcare professionals, IT, designers, policy analysts and entrepreneurs to collaborate, dream up & create solutions to real world problems to improve healthcare.
At the hackathon, we will build prototypes of our ideas, so that they can be tested to potentially transform healthcare. We are excited to have CHEO-OCTC consider your successful projects for pilot opportunities at the hospital. Other projects will move on to become viable startups — and that’s how we together can create impact!

Early bird tickets are $35 CAD for participants so be sure to apply soon. Observer tickets are $20 CAD. The early bird rate ends April 3rd.
We understand that you are excited to solve problems but please refrain from developing the solution before the Hackathon. Feel free to ideate, design, post, update, review, join a project on sparkboard!
