Rowan University and Inspira Health Network teamed up to bring a medical twist to the traditional hack-a-thon.

Nine teams from the two organizations spent two days developing groundbreaking initiatives to help improve patient care. Projects addressed everything from speeding up diagnoses to improving personalized medication. After a day of working on every detail of their projects, teams presented to the judges, and five finalists were chosen to refine their presentation and present again later that afternoon.

In the end, three projects were awarded $20,000 to continue their work: a ride-sharing service to streamline patient transportation, development of a 3-D fluorescent microscope for quick dermatologic diagnosis and personalization of chronic gastrointestinal disease treatment using patient data.
