FHIR @HACK | July 9 – 11th, 2021

The Challenge

Healthcare providers regularly collect sensitive medical information about their patients. This forces clinicians to spend excessive amounts of time on data entry, and burdens hospitals with the responsibility of organizing, maintaining, and protecting a massive database of confidential patient records.

Develop a solution that prioritizes patient/clinician experience. This solution should have: 

  • built-in features to respect patient data
  • interoperability across platforms
  • clean, intuitive interface and app experience 

Since there are several other initiatives that are focused on COVID, we would like you to think of non-COVID related problems and solutions. We’ve all been patients before, so take some time to consider — how can you make the doctor-patient experience better?

About Us

MayJuun is a team of clinicians, designers, and developers who are fed up with the state of technology in healthcare. We’re frustrated by poorly designed tools, layouts, and interfaces, and decided to take matters into our own hands.

We are hosting this hackathon in partnership with The @ Company, the creator of a privacy-first platform that gives people control over their own data.

Diverse group of brightly-colored people crowd together, each performing a different activity; for example jogging or taking a selfie.
