The Hackathon Challenges

Rehabilitation of RMDs

A large and increasing number of people suffer from Rheumatic or Musculoskeletal Diseases such as Arthrosis or Arthritis. Long-term co-operation and motivation of the patient are key factors to the outcome of rehabilitation processes. Which smart solutions will enable patients to partner and co-moderate their rehabilitation journey in hospital and at home?


Intelligent models combining analog and digital care, surroundings and single devices helping to compensate loss of mental or body functions. How can people with e.g. dementia and their caring environment be supported by digital solutions to live in a maximum of individual freedom, comfort and safety?

Individual medicine is more than treatment – new business and accounting models for patient, physician and hospital

The right/best medical devices in treatment are very often too complex to bring them easily to the patients or physicians. Which digital pathways can be used to ease this process?

Improving experiences in perioperative medicine for patients and healthcare professionals

An injury due to an accident throws people off their usual track. Especially if a surgical treatment or several diagnostic procedures are required. The actual operation in the middle of the treatment chain often leads to severe stress and many patients feel left alone in that situation and even after the operation.  How can we empower patients before and after surgery through digital innovations, and thus also improve the perioperative experience for patients and healthcare professionals?
