Mark your diaries for the 23rd & 24th May 2019 – the hugely popular Welsh Health Hack is back at Life Sciences Hub Wales.
The annual Welsh Health Hack event unites healthcare professionals with those from digital, technology and data industries to solve clinical challenges faced by those on the front line of care in Wales.
Now in its third year, the hack gathers multi-agency experts together to focus on solving issues encountered by health care professionals.
The collection of varied perspectives provides insight across the whole spectrum of technological project development and delivery, ensuring that solutions are robust, sustainable and fit for the future.
How do I get involved?
If you’ve got a challenge that you face in your clinical area, you can pitch it as a topic to be solved at the hack. First, register your free place at the Welsh Health Hack 2019 Eventbrite page and organisers will be in touch a few weeks before the event to discuss submissions and help to prepare your pitch.
The event is open to everyone with a passion for innovation, even if you simply want to help others work on their challenges; it’s an excellent chance to develop your skills and understanding of health technology advancement in Wales.

How will the event run?
Day One (9am – 5pm)
• A selection of health and care staff will ‘pitch’ their challenges
• The challenge will be worked on by small multi-discipline teams, who’ll create a solution, a product idea or a prototype.
Day Two (9am – 3pm)
• The teams will present their ideas to a panel of experts from Life Sciences Hub Wales, the Welsh Government and NHS Wales.
• The most promising products will pitch for Welsh Government funding with support from the Bevan Commission.
Refreshments will be served on both days, with a drinks reception at 5pm on the first evening.
