Description

There’s been a lot of talk about Hacks and Hackathons recently, but do you know what they really mean? Join Hack expert Perry Timms and Iain Hennessey, Head of Innovation at Alder Hey Hospital as they discuss hackathons and how they can add value to our improvement efforts in health and care. Are hacks just this year’s buzz phrase, or can they deliver transformation like never before? Alongside health and care staff who will talk about their experiences of being involved in hack to try and solve a problem in health and care, Perry and Iain will look at why hacks are so much more than just a day-in-a-room, and how they can help shift an entire culture.

If you want to find out what your organisation or system could look like in ten years’ time, this lively and provocative session could be a window on your future.
