We had such a blast at the first innovate.healthcare Hackathon in Weiden / Oberpfalz. 120 people working for 3 days on 11 challenges. The Bavarian Minister of Finances Albert Füracker opened the event on the 4th of May.
Hackathons often take place in big cities. But when the focus lays on rural health it makes absolutely sense to pick Weiden in Oberpfalz as an event location. We met so many fascinating people while we supported them as coaches. Rainer Kasan (photo), founder and owner of Digithurst as well as co-owner of Telepaxx, talked about data privacy and data security in the crammed lecture hall of the University of Applied Sciences Weiden. We are very thankful for being a part of this hackathon and hope that this event will continue next year.
