2018 SLAM Competition
What is SLAM?
Every year in conjunction with the conference, the CBC also hosts a SLAM competition inviting multidisciplinary teams to solve a new problem using digital health tools. This year, the competition focused on how technology can address a current health care problem and created solutions that are patient-centric.
The purpose of the SLAM competition is to foster innovation and creativity in the field of digital healthcare solutions. By offering a grand prize each year, we are proud to show our support of each year’s winning team. Teams are judged by a panel of experts in a number of business and healthcare fields, and their judgements and comments are based on wide ranging considerations, from financial to medical and beyond.
