Cymru vs Covid: Health Hack

The COVID 19 pandemic has made us all think differently about what we do and how we do it.

Many of those working within health and social care will be grappling with the challenges of delivering services.

Businesses, Universities, and others will be enthusiastically seeking opportunities to use their skills and knowledge to develop new products and services to meet these challenges.

THIS EVENT IS ALL ABOUT CONNECTING THE PEOPLE WITH THE CHALLENGES TO THE PEOPLE WITH THE SOLUTIONS TO ACCESS FUNDING AND SUPPORT OPPORTUNITIES!

ANYONE CAN SUBMIT A CHALLENGE!

We will decide whether to accept a challenge based on:

  • Demonstrable health or social care need
  • Potential for assisting the COVID19 challenge, such as supporting integrated care, delivering services in the community and at home, financial benefit, clinical need, or delivering services in new ways.
  • Whether you can commit to quickly developing the solution.
  • We will not accept challenges where there are known existing solutions.

Zoom etiquette:

  • You'll be joining on mute - leave it that way until it's your chance to talk.
  • If you're pitching, change your Zoom name to your e-mail address so you can be contacted by those with a solution. This will be particularly useful for those watching via the website and not live, and can be done very easily within Zoom, even once you've joined the meeting.
  • Don't interrupt others, and keep your pitches short and to the point.
  • Join the meeting promptly; we can't re-start and explain everything again for latecomers!
  • You can only pitch if you've been invited to pitch; we won't be accepting new challenges on the day via Zoom.
  • Use your own phone, ipad or laptop within Betsi, as we know Zoom is blocked there.
  • No slides! Pitch with your words, outlining clearly the problem you face.
  • Have fun, come with an open mind, and engage with the Hack.
