Virtual Reality Hackathon
2665 Mission Street
The HIMSS Northern California Chapter will be sponsoring the healthcare track of the Virtual Reality Hackathon hosted by the Web3D consortium and being held in San Francisco at the newly restored Gray Area incubator facilities at 2665 Mission Street, October 17 through 19th, 2014. This is a three day hackathon in modern facilities that includes VR technology workshops for the participants.
The Chapter is seeking further sponsorships to attract additional participation from the health innovation community. These sponsorships may take the form of additional prize money, snacks, food and drinks, incubation opportunities for the winners or creative and educational opportunities such as an internship.
HIMSS Sponsorship Commitment:
- HIMSS Northern California has committed $1,000 as prize money which is to be broken out into 1st, 2nd, 3rd (e.g. $500, 300, 200). We are seeking additional funds to expand these rewards.
- At least two HIMSS members are exploring the possibility of offering an incubation opportunity at an acute care hospital.
- The Innovation Committee, chapter members or sponsors will function as judges and mentors to the healthcare coding teams during the weekend.
