The submission deadline in the Boston Scientific Connected Patient Challenge was yesterday at midnight, by which time the online competition had received 45 total submissions. The competition, hosted by Medstro, the social network for physicians, has now entered the “Crowd Voting Phase” during which anyone may visit the site to vote for their favorite submissions.
The top five submissions will be invited to present their ideas in front of a live audience at Google’s Cambridge Headquarters in Kendall Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts on February 25. This gala event will feature hot & cold hors d’oeuvres, craft beers and wine, demonstrations of prototype wearables from Boston-area academic medical researchers, a keynote by Boston Scientific founder, inventor and international speaker John Abele, and, of course, the main event—a live “Shark Tank”-style pitch-off where the finalists will vie to impress our live panel of judges to win $50,000 in prizes. Google’s Google Fit and Google Cloud Platform will also be showing off their latest technologies.
Tickets for the live event are now available but are limited. Last year’s event at Google sold out and had a waiting list of over 100 people, so if you are planning to attend you should reserve your tickets as soon as possible. The ticketing website is hosted at Eventbrite, at this URL: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/boston-scientific-remote-patient-monitoring-challenge-tickets-17945169485.
