Hackathon Winners

Friday, June 17 – Sunday, June 19, 2016

1st Place – Telecode

In response to the fact that the first few minutes of any code is the most dire for a patients outcome and it’s likely those on the scene first may not have been in a code for several years, this system automatically links nurses and physicians at the bedside with experts in CPR and Codes via a telehealth system to make sure the top quality of care is delivered.
