The HITLAB World Cup is a challenge of unparalleled diversity where innovators from across India present novel solutions and transformational technologies to pressing global healthcare needs.
Concepts can focus on any pressing health concern—from diabetes and cardiovascular disease to infant mortality and mental health. Innovators can endeavor to reorganize health systems, educate and empower patients, or enable providers to deliver more personalized patient care. And ideas can employ novel health tech applications including smartphone strategies, wearables, telemedicine, gaming technology—or any emerging tool that would get the job done.
