Fostering a Culture of Innovation and Collaboration: Inside Digital Diagnostics’ Third Company Hackathon

Digital Diagnostics is dedicated to enhancing patient outcomes through the use of state-of-the-art technology, while fostering a culture of continuous learning, innovation, creativity, and problem-solving. This was clearly illustrated during Digital Diagnostics’ third company Hackathon.

Hackathon: a collaborative, time-limited event where individuals gather to work intensively on accomplishing a common objective, such as developing innovative solutions to complex problems or challenges. Hackathons typically focus on technology and software development; however, they can cover a wide range of topics and have proven to be successful across a variety of fields.

Hackathons provide benefits that extend far beyond the products, solutions, and ideas borne from them. They also provide an ideal environment for innovation and collaboration, allowing employees to explore unconventional ideas, experiment with new concepts, and team up with colleagues from various backgrounds.

The most recent Digital Diagnostics’ Hackathon brought together employees from the Engineering, Machine Learning, Product, and Customer Success teams for two days of cross-collaboration, innovation, and team-bonding activities.

The Hackathon also included opportunities for participants to engage with one another outside their usual work environments, including team dinners and social outings.

Digital Diagnostics’ third company Hackathon was organized in-house by the Culture Club at Digital Diagnostics and attendees were encouraged to contribute to the creation of the official Hackathon t-shirt through a t-shirt design contest before the event.
