Opioid Hackathon as Implementation Strategy (013)

This study explored the feasibility and acceptability of hosting a hackathon to scale design and development of new creative opioid crisis-related modeling and visualization tools for public health and justice-related stakeholders. Through qualitative interviews with hackathon participants, public health and justice-related stakeholders, and key government implementation stakeholders (e.g., high-level county and state public health officials) during and one year after the hackathon, it examined the implementation science-related barriers and facilitators to implementing solutions created at the hackathon. Findings can help address barriers to successful implementation, a major limitation of current hackathons.
