Belgium’s top healthcare and technology brains spent a day together brainstorming ideas for the mHEALTH HACKATHON. These ideas – organised in 6 topics below – express real needs and opportunities in the market today.

Delighting patients

Making healthcare services more convenient, less complicated, less stressful and generally more delightful to experience

Belgium is a world leader in the management of clinical trials. How can we build on those capabilities? How can we protect and further improve Belgium's competitive advantage in clinical trials?

Personalised prevention
