CTSI-CN will select up to 10 ideas submitted from our Children’s National and GW community. There is no restriction on submission, but it should be an idea that could lead to a useful medical software application. It can be extremely generic or highly specialized. Potential areas of interest include (but are not limited to) self-care, medical wellness, exercise physiology, clinical applications, public health, etc.

Idea submission will close 15 January 2017, so put on your thinking caps and consult with your colleagues. To submit your app idea, fill out the simple form.

The 10 most promising ideas from all applications for further development at the hackathon. You are welcome to attend and participate, but not required. After the hackathon, the best app will be given nominal funding for the development of their prototype.

CTSI-CN will be hosting a half-day hackathon on Friday afternoon 24 March 2017. The purpose of the hackathon will be to develop the requirements and prototype user interface for medical software applications.
