Back in November we reported on Sandoz’s SXSW hackathon plans. The event happened as planned and the organizers picked three, rather than one, winners.
“All three were so unique that we really couldn’t compare them against each other. It would have been unfair to announce one as better than the other because we were inspired and surprised by the depth of all three ideas,” said Andre Heeg, M.D., global head of digital at Sandoz, the generics division of Novartis.
The three winners were:
- Regulora: a digital therapeutic for IBS
- SocialGenomics: a smart social network for rare disease patients
- Mobile Clinic: a door-to-door maternal healthcare service in Uganda
