Hackathon

Cardiology Innovations Hackathon is a competition that consists in creating innovative IT solutions using for contemporary cardiology, supporting physicians’ work and improving lives of both patients with circulatory system diseases, as well as their relatives.

Following the success of the first edition of Hackathon in 2018, we would like to invite you to take part in the second edition of the competition. This year we decided to make the competition more challening and to organise an international Hackathon. We have invited Dresden University of Technology to be part of this endeavor.

The second edition of the event is held under the honorary patronage of His Magnificence Rector of Wroclaw Medical University and the Mayor of Wroclaw. It is organised by casusBTL Group together with Wroclaw Medical University and Dresden University of Technology.

This year’s edition of the competition focuses on professional systems for predicting health condition of patients with heart failure.

Following the submission of the most interesting projects aimed at solving issued that had been defined and discussed earlier, 10 teams will qualify for the competition.

Cardiology Innovations Hackathon is more than just a programming race. Solutions created within Hackathon will be evaluated not only in terms of their comprehensiveness and the level of implementation but also innovation and clinical application.

SUMMARY

Six teams participated in the Medical Hackathon which took place within Cardiology Innovation Days 2019 in Wroclaw.

 

hackathon winners

All teams demonstrated creativity, ingenuity and determination, presenting complete concepts and prototypes of applications supposed to support patients with heart failure, help them control their disease and accompany them in everyday life.

The main idea of ​​the application is to introduce the control over the most important factors, influencing the course of heart failure, in a form of a game: a patient earns points for giving correct answers in quizzes and for using such modules as "Minimizing risk factors", "Medicaments appliance", "Physical activity", "Self-control" and "Education".

CardiAnna is a medical assistant for both patients and doctors which stores all patient's medical records. A patient can manage access to his documentation, making it available to doctors if needed. Doctors, in turn, can view patient records at any time.

Access to CardiAnna is possible from PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones.

Cardio Check is an application for diagnostics and triage of medical conditions. It checks symptoms using machine learning and Bajes statistics algorithms.

The application contains the most up-to-date medical database, based on the latest scientific achievements (e.g. PubMed) and is verified by doctors. Given that, a patient is able to check the causes of his symptoms, see how serious they are and what should be done next - a patient receives reliable and accurate information.

Stay dry is a remote monitoring, treatment control, input and constant access to measurements and vital signs of the patient (saturation, heart rate, blood pressure); medical assistance (alarms, reminders, pharmacy locator, price comparison). Stay dry is also a guide in case disease symptoms appear.

In addition to this, the application allows to quickly identify edema by self-made ultrasound at home - so that a patient remains "dry".

OUR MISSION

Despite huge progress in understanding of pathophysiology, implementation of new therapeutic methods and prophylaxis, heart failure is posing an ever growing health and social problem in Europe. Nowadays it is the only cardiovascular disease with increasing incidence. It is estimated that from 600 000 to 700,000 Polish people suffer from heart failure.

Heart failure is a fatal disease but it can be prevented and effectively treated by early diagnosis and multidirectional therapy, elimination of risks factors and preventing exacerbation.

That's where we see our mission - improving the e-health sector, making use of the potential of modern IT. Together with the participants of Hackathon and under the guidance of mentors and experts, we intend to create expert systems which enable predicting health condition of patients with heart failure, contributing to decrease of decompensations and increase of patients’ awareness.

PARTICIPANTS

We invite all interested parties - not only medical and technical students, but also experienced programmers, physicians, and specialists in psychology, marketing and medical equipment.

Do you have an idea but no team? All is not lost yet! Send us your application and we will arrange a team for you. Write us who you are and what kind of role you see yourself in and we will do our best so that you can effectively use your skills effectively. Just check the option 'I HAVE NO TEAM’ when filling in the register form.

CRITERIA OF ASSESSMENT

Start thinking today and gather all the knowledge you can about heart failure.

Analyse relationships between factors impacting on the course and progression of the disease.
Make use of the knowledge of mentors and experts, scientific articles, EBM, clinical data.
Draw conclusions to build a knowledge base and create an expert system which will be able to prognose the condition of a patient with heart failure.

Your software can be dedicated to patients to simplify control of the disease, but also to physicians to support them in making decisions.

 

The task for the team is:

to develop of a conception of an expert system and to create a prototype of an interactive application prototype, present its user interface and key functions.

Writing a complete code and presenting the prepared solution would be an additional asset
