Hackathons are useful for a number of reasons: meet interesting and likeminded people, work on cases outside the comfort zone, propel the business involved, and hone your own skills during the process.
At Hacking Health UMCG Groningen, my team was awarded 3rd prize. My idea was simple and effective: a door knob hanger to remind elderly participants in 24h urine collection projects. No smartphone apps, no cloud-based solutions, no tech at all.
Sometimes, low-tech wins.
