Catalyzing Digital Health in the Triangle

For the past three months the Digital Health Innovation Sprint™ has brought together teams comprising OF clinicians, administrators, developers, designers, and engineers to design digital health solutions addressing the problem of medication adherence in the 50+ population. This immersive series hosted by AARP and UNC’s Center for Health Innovation has been supported by some of the region’s leading digital health experts, as we look to deliver a positive impact to the people and communities we serve.


Join us for Demo Day on May 11th!

This FREE event is open to the Triangle community as finalists in the Digital Health Innovation Sprint pitch their medication adherence solutions to a panel of judges. It is also a great opportunity to network and engage with experts, investors and stakeholders from the digital health ecosystem in the Triangle. Winning teams will win cash prizes and the potential opportunity to pilot their solution with AARP and UNC. Pizza and refreshments will be provided.

During this full-day design hackathon, The Hatchery Innovation Champions will guide teams through design thinking exercises to stimulate the solution design process. In addition, teams will gain practical support and guidance from industry mentors, and develop a pitch to be presented to a panel of judges at the end of the day. Four teams will be shortlisted to pitch on Demo Day and will receive solution acceleration support from The Hatchery @ AARP and The UNC Center for Health Innovation leading up to Demo Day.


Thursday May 11, 5:30-8:30pm

Demo Day is the culmination of weeks of ideation, experimentation, and development. It's a day where each finalist will demonstrate and pitch their solution to a panel of judges. Pitches will be evaluated across a range of criteria, including technical feasibility, impact of solution, customer experience, and commercial viability.
