This year, Ohio State's Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) will be hosting its 5th annual Bio-Hack, a weekend-long hackathon full of engineering, learning, networking, and innovation. Bio-Hack gives engineers and clinicians a unique, experiential learning opportunity to build and engineer health technologies. The theme for this year's Bio-Hack focuses on patient safety within the healthcare sector. With over 200,000 patient deaths due to medical error, we challenge participants to devise innovative solutions that address system improvements and effective protocols to foster a healthcare environment that values patient safety.
Teams can take inspiration from challenges presented by our supporting companies and organizations. After the 24-hour "hacking" session is over, teams present their projects to industry experts and judges to get feedback and compete for prizes.
BMES is dedicated to fostering a medtech culture that strives to solve unmet needs in healthcare. As a participant, you will join talented cross dimensional teams and showcase your expertise. BMES is proud of the legacy Bio-Hack has created at Ohio State and hopes to continue bridging the gap between formal education and industry experience. We hope to see you there!
