Samsung Collaborates with MIT and the Department of Veterans Affairs to Tackle Healthcare's Biggest Challenges

Samsung Electronics Americas, Inc. (SEA) is teaming up with MIT (News - Alert) and the VA's United States Veteran's Health Administration (VHA) for the third annual MIT Hacking Medicine Grand Hack taking place on May 3rd - 5th in Boston, Massachusetts. This three-day event invites engineers, clinicians, designers and developers to work together to address some of today's biggest healthcare's challenges.

As a part of the VHA track, Hackathon participants will have an opportunity to develop new applications using the Samsung Galaxy Note9 that address AST & Rehab, Cancer, and Mental Health. The Note9 offers smartphone innovations on a large format display, including a Bluetooth LE technology S Pen; an intelligent camera with AI capabilities; DeX - transforming the phone into a PC like experience; and removable SSD to support all data needs.

Samsung (News - Alert) has a deep and long-standing commitment to healthcare daing back to the early 90s when the company opened the Samsung Medical Center in Korea. Since that time the company has been working with leading partners to develop and deploy multiple commercial solutions for the U.S. market designed to improve healthcare outcomes. By leveraging this heritage expertise, Samsung is uniquely positioned to help foster this year's Hackathon participants to create transformative digital healthcare solutions.


"Use of consumer-based technologies can help expand access to care, improve quality of care, reduce costs, and improve the user experience for patients and clinicians," said David Rhew, Samsung Electronics America's Chief Medical officer and a keynote speaker and judge for the event.

"Through participation in events like the Grand Hack, Samsung reinforces our commitment to providing transformative mobility solutions that support interoperability, enhance collaboration with community care partners, and maximize veteran access to care through telehealth and connected health programs." added Samsung Vice President for Government Sales Chris Balcik.

By pairing the VHA's priorities with Samsung technology and the MIT Hacking Medicine innovation ecosystem, there is tremendous potential to innovate and scale value-based services such as telehealth, virtual care, and remote patient monitoring, to have a profound impact on every aspect of the VA's healthcare delivery process.
