IMT Newsletter 1 May 2018

We are very excited to invite you to the ‘Infusion Day’ Hackathon we have been working on with Roche Products Limited. We’re looking for 6 teams to develop solutions that could address the challenges facing healthcare today… do you think you have the ideas, innovation and creativity to compete and try to win £5,000 as a team?

To view the full hackathon challenge, rules and prize information, as well as applying for your place, please register here by Friday 11 May, as places are limited.

The Challenge
Teams will work against the clock, over the weekend, to develop innovative solutions to address the challenges faced by patients receiving infusion medicines; from preparing for the infusion day to networking with other patients. If you’re not a healthcare expert don’t worry. During the weekend, you will have the chance to attend Mentor Clinics with healthcare professionals, technology and business experts, to gather insights and feedback from experts to help shape your ideas/solutions.

The Prize 
There is one overall prize fund of £5,000 for the team that the judges deem to have developed the ideas/solutions that will have the biggest positive impact on a patient’s experience when receiving an infused medicine.

Due to the involvement of prize funds, it is unfortunately not possible for Healthcare Professionals (HCP) or Other Relevant Decision Maker (ORDM) (as defined by the ABPI Code of Practice for the Pharmaceutical Industry) to participate in the hackathon. RXUKNONP00476 – April 2018. This is a non-promotional meeting organised and funded by Roche Products Limited.
