New York-Presbyterian Hospital wants to enhance its patient portal and will have several teams of software developers and designers competing for $85,000 in money during the weekend of March 15-16 to get the job done.

The hospital has invited the professionals to a “Hackathon.” The first prize for a team of up to 8 professionals is $50,000 with $25,000 for second place and $10,000 for third. “This is a unique opportunity to have designers look at the functionality of the portal and ask, ‘what if?’” says Helen Kotchoubey, director of I.T. for patient engagement at the hospital.
