Health Hack Academy Hackathon 2016

A big thank you to all the team members who attended the Hackathon September 10, 2106

You co-created great solutions!

“Uppdrag Psykisk Hälsa”  at SKL has decided to explore the idea from the Moodstory team further. The motivation for the decision is the potential in Moodstory to help young people to express emotions, track experiences in order to support the dialogue between the young patient and care giver to recognize patterns and choose appropriate action. A short presentation of the Moodstory idea is found here

Five of the teams took the chance to present their solutions At Digital Health Days September 22. presentations are available here.

Mental issues among teenagers are increasing and almost 60% of 15-year-old girls are reporting psychosomatic issues. Can better insights in psychology improve well-being? How can we employ new digital tools and communication channels to reach teenagers as well as professionals at schools? We need your skills and experiences.

You can read about the specific challenges here.

Extended team of organizers & possibilites to get SUpport to test & Develop your solution

This year Health Hack Academy has teamed up with Gustavsberg vårdcentral, a primary care centre just outside Stockholm that is determined to be the best at treating mental illness. All teams will have access to experienced psychologists from Gustavsberg vårdcentral.

We also welcome SKL (Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions) as a partner, supporting that good ideas from the hackathon will be spread in local authorities and regions.

“Uppdrag Psykisk Hälsa” at SKL will be able to finance testing and prototyping of one or two ideas from the hackathon. This is a possibility for the teams of the hackathon to take their ideas/solutions to the next step. The decision is made by representatives from “Uppdrag Psykisk Hälsa” at SKL based on the ideas potential to spread and become implemented within local authorities and the national health care systems. Since it is not possible to predict the results from the hackathon, there will however be no guarantee that an idea will be selected.  If an idea/solution is selected they will be contacted before end of September.
