OHSU Invent-a-thon




OHSU is joining forces with MIT Hacking Medicine and more than 20 academic and industry partners for the inaugural OHSU Invent-a-thon, a virtual health care hackathon, October 23–25, 2020.

Open to anyone in the world, our event will convene hundreds of innovation enthusiasts – from thought leaders to students - in health care, engineering, research, business, and design to build impactful medtech and digital health solutions to pressing challenges in:

  • Surgical Care
  • Early Disease Detection
  • Rural Health
  • Management of Chronic Conditions
  • Health Equity

How does a virtual health care hackathon work? During the Invent-a-thon, participants will choose a specific problem within their track and work virtually within interdisciplinary teams to brainstorm and build a solution to this problem. Teams can use all tools at their disposal and will receive expert guidance from our mentors and sponsors as they develop their solutions. At the end of the Invent-a-thon, teams pitch their solutions to a panel of judges to compete for $40,000 in prizes.

Teams emerging from the Invent-a-thon will have a chance to receive continuing mentorship and access to support and resources in order to realize their solution and create real-world impact.

Attendance is free for all accepted applicants. Let’s make healthcare better! Applications are due October 14 (apply at Inventathon.org).
