Driving Innovation in the WA Healthcare Ecosystem

WA Health Hackathon Week 2021 will bring together a diverse group of data professionals, digital specialists and students to explore innovative digital and data-driven solutions to real world healthcare challenges. We are excited to be delivering this event with out partners Amazon Web Services (AWS), Telethon Kids Institute (TKI), MTPConnect WA Life Sciences Innovation Hub and the UWA Data Science Club!

Participants must be based in Perth and be able to attend the event in person. You can register individually or as part of a team.

There are some fantastic prizes to be won, including AWS sponsorship (details to be announced soon) and a one-on-one intensive med-tech workshop with Perth BioDesign directors!


Together with our partners, we have been working with WA-based clinicians, medical researchers and healthcare practitioners to identify and define real-world challenges to be included in the WA Health Hackathon. We’ve received a wide range of healthcare challenges, with potential solutions in the application of predictive analytics, natural language processing, automation, digitization and data visualisation.

When you register to participate in the Health Hackathon, you must select a preferred healthcare challenge. Each challenge requires different types of skill sets, so check the challenge type before you pick a challenge to make sure you capabilities align. In addition, some challenges come with local datasets provided by the Challenge Owner, while others rely on open source data.
