Datarwe is extremely pleased to be the official platform partner and sponsor of Australia’s biggest national healthcare Datathon, organised by IntelliHQ and ANZICS, the Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society.

Healthcare Datathon

The datathon

The Healthcare Datathon is an immersive two-day workshop for solving unique healthcare challenges with artificial intelligence and machine learning models and using real-world healthcare datasets.

Clinicians will team up with data scientists, technologists and data & computer science students from across the country to investigate healthcare problems in the form of a datathon.

In the limited time frame available, teams will strive to develop minimum viable solutions that they present to their fellow teams at a national ‘Pitch night’ on Thursday October the 20th.

Prizes will be awarded by Datarwe in the form of further data platform access and data science support to the winning teams, enabling them to further develop their clinical solution.

This Datathon is the final part of the National Big Data Capture, Management & Analysis, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) training program. This program is supported the Australian Government’s Researcher Exchange and Development within Industry (REDI) Initiative, powered by MTP Connect.

The data available at the Datathon

The program’s hospital partners have committed to providing teams with de-identified real patient data from Australian patients. These data sets will contain hundreds of thousands of data points covering the below areas of healthcare – list not exhaustive:

  • Critical care
  • Cardiology
  • Oncology
  • Administration

Examples of types of data are:

  • clinical data, ex. lab results, vital sign medications, clinical notes, etc.
  • operational data, ex. drug prescription and usage, clinical costing, etc.
  • medical research data, ex. pharmacokinetics, images, microbiological, etc.
  • other data: diagnostic imaging PBS prescription data, patient demographics etc.
