Mylan Hackathon 2016

Mylan is a global pharmaceutical company looking to provide the entire world with new medicine, and set new healthcare standards across the globe.

The ACM RMU Chapter is looking to form two to four teams to compete in the Mylan Hackathon, with each team being composed of five members.  The event will be held in Pittsburgh on February 26-27, 2016.  The group is looking for both CIS students and engineering students to compose their teams.  The Hackathon will involve brainstorming and coming up with a technology solution to meet one of these technology-in-healthcare challenges:

  • How could access to information overcome obstacles to HIV treatment in emerging markets?
  • How can information collected by Microsoft Band 2.0 be used to paint meaningful “health pictures?”
  • Via a Microsoft Kinect, how can we expand on its capabilities to enrich its use in telemedicine?
  • How will your voice change healthcare in the future (e.g. use of something similar to Amazon Echo)?
  • How can we better understand the state of “access” in the world?

More on the challenges can be found here:

If students are interested to participate, they should contact the ACM RMU Chapter President, Mohammed AlJaser at moast145@mail.rmu.edu.
Listed below are the rules and description for the event itself:

Before the event:

  • Form your team, choose your challenge and talk about potential solutions. Assign roles and responsibilities within your team based on each member’s talents and interests. Consider what other teams might build and whether your solution will stand out.

During the event:

  • There is limited time to build your solution, so wasted moments may affect your outcome. Be honest and critical early on, that way, you’ll have time to course correct, if necessary.
  • Talk to the the Mylan coaches and ask for advice


  • When the buzzer sounds, you’ll have 5 minutes to present your solution. The cutoff time will be strictly enforced.
  • Teams will draw numbers out of hat to determine presentation order. Determine presentation roles – e.g., who will speak, who will run the laptop – in advance.
  • Designate one laptop as the presentation machine. Test loading material on it before you present. Make sure you can connect the laptop to our projector; we support VGA and HDMI.
  • Bring clickers or laser pointers with you, to help speed up the presentation process
