Update 2 July 2020: Due to the current COVID-19 developments, Northern Health’s Hack Weekend has been postponed.

Welcome to What the Hack? – Northern Health’s first hack weekend, held 11 -12 July in Epping.

What the hack? brings together Northern Health staff who have a problem to solve within their work area, and ‘techies’ of all description, from students and gurus, app and software developers, data professionals, designers and other digital wizzes, to work together over a weekend and create exciting solutions and products.

We welcome participants from all parts of Australia to join us in person at Northern Hospital, Epping or online.

It is a fun way to brainstorm collaboratively and come up with quick solutions. It’s also about having a great time, learning something new and getting to meet some cool people.

We are looking for the three big ideas and three big solutions! Three problems that our patients and clinicians face, that could be ‘digitally’ solved. What is the theme you ask?

‘Supporting Northern Health to re-imagine and transform healthcare, using digital solutions, in the new world’

We are inviting you – the people passionate about all things tech and healthcare to join us!  ‘What the Hack?’, will help our healthcare professionals to see what is possible in the tech sector and to learn from and be inspired by great developers; in turn we’d like developers to be excited by the unique challenges we face and use their expertise to help push forward towards a digital ‘post – COVID-19’ future.


Northern Health Centre for Education and Research (NCHER), 187 Cooper St, Epping VIC 3076 – next to Northern Hospital Epping or virtually via Microsoft Teams.


11 – 12  July 2020, 9 am – 6 pm, both days, with optional evening sessions for those that want to burn the midnight oil!
