The Health Hack Academy is a joint project organized by partners interested in developing the digital health care scene: Veryday, EIT ICT Labs, Stockholm Science City and Digital | Health Days. The kickoff takes places on May 9 in Stockholm when the participants will learn more about some of the challenges and meet with companies and organisations who are stakeholders in finding new solutions for the healthcare of tomorrow.
The program contains the kickoff workshop and a 48 hour hackathon with the possibility to take part in two more workshops where the finalists will have the opportunity to further develop their idea, product or service. They will then present their results, prototypes or business models at the Digital Health Days conference on August 25-26 at the Stockholm Fair.

During 48 hours on May 16-18, researchers, patients and healthcare professionals will meet entrepreneurs, programming engineers, designers and business developers. In order to make sure that the good ideas from the HHA can be implemented well in the real world the participants will get the opportunity to learn more about user-centric design at the workshop lead by Veryday, a leading design company with more than 40 years’ experience of design projects for the health sector.
Our long experience within healthcare has taught us that uncovering deep insights about both patients and caregivers is key to innovation. But we’ve also learned that, given the opportunity to express themselves, people are incredibly creative and knowledgeable.
Lennart Andersson Director of Interaction Design and Design Strategist at Veryday
