Philips Code to Care Challenge (3rd Nov to 16th Nov 2020)

Code to Care Challenge is a hackathon from Philips, aimed at generating ideas and solutions that ensure better health outcomes, improve patient experience and enhance healthcare staff satisfaction. Philips has always invested in the workforce of the future. With this hackathon, they aim to bring the best minds in India together, on a single platform, and give the next generation ideas a chance to step forward.

Philips software developers don’t just work on code. They also work by an innate code of caring about and making life better for others. The code they develop doesn’t just result in the next gimmicky tech gadget. It exponentially elevates the level of care for everyone as part of our health continuum.

Spanning across three stages, the competition requires students to build a prototype of the Idea/solution on any of the three given problems in domains of AI, Smart Devices, and Healthcare Services.
