DesignHack Competition

The American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM) is hosting its first 'hackathon' for preventive medicine physicians, other professionals, and non-ACPM members to design and submit innovative ideas for improving preventive medicine, public health, and healthcare systems.

The Preventive Medicine DesignHack 2019 is a multi-round competition awarding monetary prizes to kickstart great ideas into actionable interventions and business ventures. Competition judges are looking for new and innovative ideas that bridge the health continuum, connect health systems, communities, providers, and patients, and address challenges of healthcare data and interoperability.

To address a common misconception, 'hackathon' participants and team members do not need programming or coding experience. The competition is about designing your idea and pitching it to the judges. ACPM members and non-members are eligible.

Please note that the Round 1 submission deadline has passed. We are no longer accepting new entries. Those already entered in the contest can review the project timeline for details about future deadlines and expectations.
