HealthTech Hackathon: 10 Teams Have Developed Digital Solutions For The Medical Field

3 teams interested in developing medicine through technology will continue to transform and improve their digital solutions in the HealthTech Acceleration stage! The ideas were selected during the HealthTech Hackathon, which brought together future doctors, students, biologists, entrepreneurs, startups, medicine and technology enthusiasts, but also all those interested in innovation and science. For 3 days, 10 teams exchanged experience, participated in mentoring sessions and increased their skills to develop solutions aimed at improving medical services. HealthTech Hackathon is part of the “HealthTech Vertical 2021” – a program dedicated to tech startups that develop solutions for the medical field and is organized by Startup Moldova in collaboration with the State University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Nicolae Testemitanu”, with the support of USAID and Sweden within the Tekwill project, other partners FreshBlood and SanoPass.

In the acceleration stage, the 3 winning teams will validate their products, using all the necessary means, support and expertise of specialists, both in the IT and medical field, to improve their technological products and to move on to the next stage – the piloting. At the end of the acceleration program, the participants will have the opportunity to test their solutions in practice.
