Hackathon for Medical Technologies – Focus on the Patient & User


We are experiencing the Age of the Empowered Human - an age where workers, users and patients will no longer be dictated to as they were in previous generations. In order to respond to this shift, medical technology businesses need a new set of ingredients to design their strategies and truly resonate in the marketplace. The empowered human age offers both an opportunity and a threat for organisations.

This is an interactive working session held over 1 day. During the workshop the attendees will explore a number of these key ingredients in a practical manner that are relevant to the medical technology sector. Companies will come together to explore and utilise these ingredients in a non-competitive way.

The outcome from the session is an awakening to this change and how it is impacting the medical technology sector– we will change your view, so you change where you go.
