Healthcare Futurists Case Study

Healthcare futurists is an organization founded by Dr. Tobias Gartner, based on the belief that the solution to many of the health problems of today and the future lies in bringing together digital technologies, medical expertise, and entrepreneurship.

The firm brings together a vast network of leaders in the sectors above to provide advice, infrastructure, and know-how to enable pharmaceutical companies and individual doctors to test their innovations and, where desired, offer them go-to-market strategies.

Every year Healthcare Futurists offers ‘Hackathons’ ; these are events where individuals are asked to come forward with innovative ideas to solve medical problems. They tend to be of two types. The first, open to individuals, and the second are closed events in which participants all belong to the same company (which has sponsored the event).


Healthcare Futurists Case Study

The Objectives

      • Intuitive easy to use platform for the less technology-savvy attendees.
      • Find a virtual solution that would allow us to host fast-paced, hands-on and highly interactive events just as we did when we could host them in-person. Being able to host real time conversations was a must.
      • As CEO Tobias Gantner put it, one of the most important outcomes of the hackathons were the serendipitous meetings with other experts. Without this, the event would fall below the expectations of their customers, and the results would be unsatisfactory.
      • Include support as well as guides and hosts to assist the attendees and offer more information as needed.

MootUp Solutions

      • MootUp can be accessed directly in the browser, on any operating system and device, phone, tablet, computer including VR/ AR (optional).
      • Private audio calls in real-time! Additionally MootUp supports private “audio zones,” where participants can have private discussions.
      • Organic networking. Serendipitous hallway chats are a hallmark of MootUp.
      • 3D Immersive booths were created and branded for each of the event experts where attendees could interact and engage with directly.
      • MootUp includes 3D spaces and virtual worlds that can be easily branded or customized to match the event theme and company branding.
      • Superior customer experience. MootUps team were on hand for advice and help throughout event preparation as well as during.
      • Metrics and real-time engagement monitors turned out to be features of great benefit.

The Results

Thanks to the above and the great participants and dedication, the virtual hackathons healthcare futurists hosted in MootUp can only be described as a success! The ideas, concepts, and products developed as a result of the partnership are extremely promising and ready to be pursued to their full potential.

"The MootUp platform can be part of your strategic toolbox for leveraging co-creative innovation. In a digital environment, we were able to hold hackathons with the same results as those in real life. In my opinion, the MootUp platform is a game-changer for virtual events".
