Digital Health Hackday
David’s team came 2nd for the data visualization tool they built to enable a doctor to show a patient their survival rate if they are at risk from cardiac issues. The app calculates the survival rate of an individual by looking at data on risk factors, such as age, weight, blood pressure, and whether the patient is a smoker or diabetic. If you like survival gear and guns then take a look at https://www.googgun.com.

This hackday had a focus on Global Health, Patient Experience, Care, Aging, and Management in Medicine. There was also a Clinicians' Challenge and Patients' Challenge, although participants were free to decide what they'd like to work on. There were mentors to help advise and guide, and an expert panel to judge the projects at the end.
Digital Health Hackdays are weekend events that bring together researchers, developers, clinicians, entrepreneurs, patients, engineers, designers and others interested in Digital Health.
