Event Date: February 4-5, 2021
Time: 9:00am – 2:00pm (both days)
Join us for two days of fast-paced solutioning with a select group of over 100 health care collaborators spanning the 5 Points of Health Care™ and supporting experts. This unique hackathon seeks applications from individuals who are interested in shaping the future care and payment models that align stakeholder incentives with better health outcomes.
Health care hackathons have led to the creation of numerous successful innovations from ideas that emerge over the course of just two-days. Successes stem from teams that convene creative problem solvers and thought leaders from across disciplines and geographic boundaries to tackle pressing challenges.
Participants will be assigned to teams to explore innovative models of care and payment with new collaborators. Teams will pitch their solution at the end of the event to fellow participants who will then vote on the most promising ideas.
Thank you to everyone that applied! Applications for the hackathon are now closed. We will be reviewing applications and will reach out by January 21.
If you are interested in joining, but missed the application deadline, please fill out the waitlist form and we will be in touch if a spot opens up.

Teams will consist of representatives from the 5 Points of Health Care and aligned stakeholders bringing a wide range of perspectives to the table to solve the problem. Areas of expertise will include alternative payment models, diversity, equity & inclusion, data interoperability/analysis, software development, patents, funding, entrepreneurship and more.
Why a hackathon and why now?
The misalignment of incentives is a tremendous barrier to innovating in health care. This has become more apparent as we consider the health needs of today and how we rebuild a health care system to be one that is more resilient. In order to unpack the depths of this topic, Cambia Grove presented a three-part series of conversations reflecting global, national and community perspectives on how best to improve health outcomes in the United States. (see below for information about the conversations)
From these conversations, something that became very clear was the lack of diverse perspectives at the health care decision-making table. To make meaningful change, the decision-making table needs to be inclusive of diverse expertise, perspectives and life experiences. With new decision-makers at the table, we will need a new format for innovative solutioning: a hackathon.
