"Our goal is simple:
improve paediatric patients' lives"
the room of the future
After an extremely successful first edition in 2021, Hack the Hospital is back with a simple goal: improve paediatric patient's life.
This time we are taking one step further and we aim to design the room of the future so as to ensure they have the most comfortable, safe and efficient experience at the hospital.
Whether you are envisioning a kid's wonderland or a replica of their own home; we are just dreaming to make their experience as comfortable and safe as possible, and the healthcare professionals' work as streamlined and efficient as we can.
