This month, Hacking Health Hamilton is hosting another fantastic Cafe meetup at CoMotion On King in Hamilton. CoMotion On King is a new coworking initiative and Hamilton's largest coworking space in the heart of downtown. Now healthcare innovators in Hamilton will have a chance to get inside and enjoy CoMotion on King's hospitality.

Two awesome groups are presenting this month:

Dr. Richard Sztramko practices both Geriatrics and General Internal Medicine at St. Peter’s Hospital, part of Hamitlon Health Sciences, and Juravinski Hospital. He received his Bachelor of Health Sciences degree from McMaster University and Medical Degree from the University of Toronto. He completed his Internal Medicine and Geriatrics residencies at the University of British Columbia. For additional training, Dr. Sztramko worked at the Memory and Aging Centre, University of California San Francisco, focusing on Behavioural Neurology. He has been an Associate Program Director in the Core Medicine training program at UBC with an interest in Resident Wellness.

In his personal life, he enjoys playing and composing music (singer/songwriter genre), running, and dining out. Dr. Sztramko has founded a startup involving inpatient physician communication and handover called the Virtual Ward, and provided advice on the implementation of telehealth. He is pursuing a Masters of eHealth at McMaster with a focus on clinician user interface design and analytics.

Dr. Sztrmko will present Virtual Ward - Hacking Physician Handoffs.

Omar Boursalie is a Biomedical Engineering PhD student at McMaster University aiming to overcome challenges in healthcare through big data and Artificial Intelligence technology. His interest in healthcare began the day he was born at McMaster Hospital and with Hamilton being on the cutting edge of engineering and healthcare, there couldn’t have been a more fitting city to be raised in! When he’s not teaching, you can often find Omar biking and sailing!

Omar will present Monitoring Heart Disease with Wearable Sensors and Health Records.
