Geisinger’s Hacking Health hackathon 

is Saturday, Oct. 5, 2019 at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, 525 Pine St., Scranton.

During this one-day event hosted by Geisinger’s Steele Institute for Health Innovation and Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, we invite innovators to strategically work on a problem that Geisinger is aiming to solve. The winning team will receive a $5,000 prize. The first- and second-place teams will enjoy a lunch meet-and-greet with some of Geisinger’s Steele Institute for Health Innovation leadership. The top three teams will have the opportunity for a potential initial investment to develop their solution then later pitch for a second investment.

Theme: Developing a product to solve provider burnout and operational inefficiencies due to electronic health record (EHR) systems documentation requirements and current regulatory landscape
