The goal of the hackathon is twofold: 1) Understand the needs of patients & citizens around hospital wait times & frame the problem areas with hospital waiting list that have the biggest impact on patients in Ireland, and 2) address the real life problem in a viable, impactful way using the user experience design & digital technology expertise that we’re hoping some of you might be able to lend.
We want to understand the develop some useful tools, visualisations and applications that will allow citizens to make informed decision as to where to seek treatment and allow citizens to hold health service providers accountable to high performance goals.
