1. Awareness and literacy

Patients think that the general public should be more aware of the risk of acquiring specific diseases (especially cancer). The need to do regular check-ups and screenings, and the benefits of both, should be made known and pushed (e.g. PSA or Pap test screening). In addition, awareness of reference/normal values, and the meaning of these, should be communicated to physicians and patients to align knowledge and medical literacy among the patient, caregiver and HCP communities.

All attendees, sponsors, partners, volunteers and staff at our hackathon are required to agree with the Hack Code of Conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to ensure a safe environment for everybody. For more details on how the event is run, see the Health Hack FAQ.
