Hacking health

So I attended the hacking health event yesterday. I was thoroughly exhausted by the time I actually got to the event so I couldn't have much fun. Plus, there was no break at all during the idea pitches and presentation. Nevertheless, I jotted down the projects which seemed interesting.

The event itself was well attended, given that it was held on a Friday, when most normal people would be chilling at home or at a bar. I'll admit that I was only interested in hearing about the ideas. I don't expect to actually hack an app this weekend (pretty busy this weekend). Many of the ideas dealt with some form of image processing, and many others were iPhone/iPad based.

Some of the ones I liked: pill identification using images, wound detector for diabetic patients and reducing patient waiting times.
