HospitalRun Lisbon Hackathon – 18 June 2016

HospitalRun Lisbon Hackathon


Quase dois mil milhões de pessoas vivem em países subdesenvolvidos, onde há menos de um hospital para cada 100.000 habitantes.

Ainda por cima, a maioria desses poucos hospitais não têm como adquirir e instalar um Sistema de Informação para gerir e racionalizar os seus serviços. Os médicos que neles trabalham gastam mais de 20% do seu tempo em tarefas administrativas, que poderiam ser realizadas de forma mais rápida e eficaz se dispusessem de sistemas básicos de gestão.

Todos sabemos que com o software correcto, esse tempo desperdiçado pode ser poupado, fazendo com que mais pessoas possam obter a ajuda de que necessitam.


Podemos salvar vidas.!


O “HospitalRun” é o primeiro projecto de desenvolvimento de um sistema Electrónico de Registos Médicos (EMR – Electronic Medical Records) baseado em tecnologia Web Open Source e podendo funcionar em modo desconectado (offline-first), para hospitais do mundo inteiro.


No dia 18 de Junho em Lisboa com o Hachaton “HospitalRun” iremos lançar as bases deste sistema!


Participem no Hackaton  “HospitalRun”, sob o tema:


Desenvolvimento de Software Open Source para Hospitais de países em vias de desenvolvimento.


Lisbon, June 18th

The event will run from 10am to 6pm at Microsoft, Rua Sinais de Fogo Lote 2.07.02, 1990–110 Lisboa. There will be WiFi, food and drinks.

More than 1.7 billion people are living in under-developed countries,
where there’s less than one hospital for every 100,000 people.

To make it worse, these scarce hospitals can’t afford an IT system.
Qualified physicians are spending more than 20% of their time in administration.
With the right software we can reduce all that wasted time.
We can make more people get the help they need.
We can save lives.

HospitalRun is a web-based, offline-first, open source EMR project for developing world hospitals.

In June 18th Lisbon will come together to push this forward.
Are you a capable developer?     What have you been using your skills for? 
With an ever bigger demand for developers, it’s easy to forget about the truly positive things you can do with your skills. 

What are you doing?

Developers in Lisbon will save the world

Well maybe not, but we can surely make a difference.
This event is the time and place for you to be there and make a difference.
With great power comes great responsibility.
We’re joining development forces for one day where we will give a boost to the development of HospitalRun.
