April 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - April 6, 2019 @ 6:00 pm
Regional Healthcare & Connected Communities
The RISE 2019 Mission:
This year’s mission is titled ‘Regional Healthcare & Connected Communities’ and is an opportunity to transform regional healthcare and build connected communities through creative collaboration between healthcare professionals, providers, consumers, students, researchers and technology creators.
RISE is a two-day event that runs Friday (5th April) evening and all day Saturday (6th April) in Tamworth. It is is a startup event known as a ‘Hackathon’ that will provide participants with the opportunity to form teams, focus on a problem statement and pitch their ‘brilliant idea’ for health innovation in regional Australia to a panel of judges who will award a prize to the most viable idea on the day.
The Problem Statements as told by the Industry:
How can we prevent and reduce trips, slips and falls with a cleaning method that does not need water or chemicals?
How do we prevent, intervene and manage secondary psychological injury after a primary physical workers compensation claim?
How might we be able to talk about a good and natural death in our communities?
How might we create health-related social movements within rural communities without the use of social media?
These problem statements have been drawn around four priority health areas. Participants will select their preferred problem statement on Friday evening, and teams will be formed to develop up and pitch like-minded solutions to the health priority areas on Saturday, working together using startup methodology.
The opportunity in joining us:
As a participant and contributor to RISE you will be networking and co-producing solutions with industry stakeholders. You will experience what happens when healthcare professionals, providers, consumers, students, researchers and technology creators all work towards solutions to address the RISE 2019 Problem Statements.
