Twelve hours, data sets from all states and the Federal Capital Territory – from household level to health facility data, from program intervention data to operational research, the Hack-a-thon of 2014 was an explosive meeting of technology, healthcare and data. This was the first ever of its kind in Nigeria. Along with partners from the Ministry of Science and Technology’s iDeaHub and other key champions of health innovations in Nigeria, PHN awarded three promising innovators for exceptionally creative ideas:
- 1st Prize went to i-Qube labs who conceptualized an innovative mobile health solution to address supply chain challenges of essential health commodities;
- 2nd Prize went to Health Central for showcasing an integrated predictive service delivery tool;
- 3rd Prize: Health IT – access and information about health infrastructure and human resources for health mapping to empower patients.
