Call for Submissions! Philips Wearables & Chronic Care Challenge

Philips is excited to announce our upcoming innovation challenge: The Philips Wearables & Chronic Care Challenge.

The Philips Wearables & Chronic Care Challenge is an open call for solutions that reimagine how care is delivered through the seamless integration of clinical-grade wearable sensors, predictive analytics, mobile apps, connectivity, med management, patient education & engagement and other transformative experiences. Participants are encouraged to think of holistic ways of solving tough, multi-disciplinary challenges surrounding the management of patients with chronic conditions through combination of technology around wearables, software & analytics to help make meaningful decisions.

Submissions are open to any interested party, including clinicians, engineers, entrepreneurs, patients, caregivers, designers, artists, etc. Anyone with ideas on how to further the Triple Aim in the management of patients with chronic diseases is welcome to apply.

The online challenge will run for two months beginning July 25, during which time the panel of judges and the community at large can offer feedback and suggestions to each team, who can then refine their submission up until the submission deadline. After that, finalists will be determined based on a combination of online voting and the votes of the panel of judges.

Submissions are now open—submit your idea today!

      To the MedTech Boston Team,

      I read on the timeline for The Philips Wearables & Chronic Care Challenge that “Submissions End, Voting Begins” on September 27, but notice that there appears to already be votes on the submissions. Does voting actually begin on September 27 or can others vote now? I just was wondering as I did not want to share my submission with my contacts before voting began. Thank you for your assistance!

      Best,

      Shawn

        Hi Shawn,
        Actually, people can vote for your submission now or any time up until the voting deadline. It is the judge voting that begins on September 27. Sorry for the confusion!
