Startup Weekend Jackson 2014 focuses on health care

innovate-mississippi_rgbStartup Weekend Jackson is focusing this year’s Jackson competition on the medical and mobile health industry by seeking innovators, inventors and entrepreneurs in the health care field.  Startup Weekend Jackson will take place May 16-18 at the Leggett Center at Millsaps College.

While the focus will primarily be health care technologies and will feature mentors, judges and sponsors from that industry, non-health care related ideas are also accepted. Additionally, those with expertise in marketing, design and development are encouraged to attend.

Mobile technology is a driving force in today’s health care industry, from hospitals using digital health technology to mobile remote patient monitoring to increasing medication compliance through wireless pill bottles. It is also changing the way people interact with health care systems through apps on smartphones and tablets. Startup Weekend Jackson wants to capitalize on Jackson’s digital health care resources and create ideas for tech startup ventures.
