Designed as a patient centric innovation journey

The DayOne Health Hack is designed as a patient centric innovation journey.  Led by patronage partner EUPATI CH and supported by consortia representing all stakeholders of the healthcare ecosystem the DayOne Health Hack reaches out to patients who want to assume an active role in finding new, digital driven solutions and improving healthcare for the better. Our patient champions supported by the DayOne Health Hack Consortium will be enabled to transform their needs into curated challenges that will be worked on and brought to tangible proof of concept solutions during the hackathon on 7 to 8 November in Basel. After the hackathon the solutions will be presented at the DayOne Conference and may be brought to realisation through various acceleration and mentoring programs.
