Improving the Waiting Room Experience


Hosted by: 



Thank you for a great hack! 

We had a great group of developers and designers come out for the 24-hour hack on April 13 in Washington, DC. Participants built some awesome products to improve the patient waiting room experience. Make sure you check back here to see videos of the day and all the winners!


Health Hack Overview 

Do you find patient waiting rooms to be boring, frustrating, and a dreadful experience? Well it doesn't need to be! MedStar Institute for Innovation and the Application Developers Alliance invite you to improve the way we wait. Bring your creativity, talent, and personal experiences to a 24-hour hackathon to help improve the waiting room experience.


On the day of the hackathon, five waiting room scenarios will be presented for you to choose from. But don't worry, leading up to the hackathon, videos will be released to help you prepare for the day.
