A team from Sant Pau wins the Hack Healthtech 2030

A team of 6th year Medicine students from the Sant Pau Teaching Unit – UAB: Berta Rifà, Inés Clavero, Irene Rexach and Júlia de Mas, with the support of Dra. Marilina Santero, researcher at the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau Research Institute and the Ibero-American Cochrane Center, won the hackathon organized by Xartec Salut.

A hackathon is a meeting of programmers with the aim of collaborative software development. On this occasion, it was about proposing a solution to current health challenges in the areas of rare diseases, mental health and childhood cancer.

The proposal of the Sant Pau group was the Burtoola tool, based on evidence and which connects clinical information and PROMs (patient reported outcomes) with the aim of reducing the prevalence of burnout among university students. The students beat the other 14 multidisciplinary groups that submitted and received recognition as part of the HealthTech 2030 Summit. The awards consist of the opportunity to participate in mentorships with potential sponsors to develop the project towards a test phase of concept.
