Health Hack Academy is a collaborative think tank for corporations, entrepreneurs, developers, researchers, designers, students, patients, healthcare professionals, caregivers and others who are looking to transform the future of healthcare.

HHA’s goal is to initiate and support the creation of digital health startups, with finalists showcased at Stockholm’s Digital│Health Days (DHD) 2014 conference.

More than just a 48-hour hackathon, Health Hack Academy (HHA) is a program that can take you from idea generation to the stage of a global conference where you’ll pitch to international investors. HHA is built around three workshops, plus the 48-hour hack. These are fun and intense hands-on events where teams collaborate to tackle real world challenges in a supportive environment of peers and mentors.

HHA is for both experienced and inexperienced hackers, thinkers and other creative minds who have never participated in a hackathon. It’s a great place to meet future business partners, potential team members or mentors for your startup. The event and environment will encourage people to learn, engage in conversations, share information and work with others to solve today’s health challenges in a hands-on way.

Participation is free of charge and we do not claim any stake in your future ideas or startups. HHA is a joint project organized by partners interested in developing the digital healthcare scene: Veryday, EIT ICT Labs, Stockholm Science City and Stockholmsmässan.

Do you have an idea on how to improve healthcare? Are you looking for access to unique expertise, sought-after contacts and resources to develop your idea? Or do you just want to stay on top of all the latest in digital health? Join Health Hack Academy!
