What is a ‘medhack’?

The component words are ´med´ for ¨medicine¨ and ´hack´ for ¨hacker¨. There are many definitions of ‘hack’, and they range from the best to the worst. Jeffrey Veen has an article on it and I agree with him that a hack is “the appropriate application of ingenuity”.

A MedHack then is that same stroke of ingenuity applied to medicine.

Other hacks may be found at MIT where students make it their regular fare.
