Call for Submissions! The Boston Scientific Connected Patient Challenge

This week, Boston Scientific is launched its third annual Connected Patient Challenge. Winners will receive up to $50,000 in services to help them realize their big idea about how to use the Internet of Things (IoT) to improve diagnosis, treatment, monitoring or patient care in the following areas:

  • Neuromodulation
  • Cardiac Rhythm Management
  • Cardiology
  • Electrophysiology
  • Peripheral Interventions
  • Oncology
  • Endoscopy
  • Urology
  • Pelvic Health

The Internet of Things (IoT) encompasses the connections between sensors and devices and patients and clinicians. How can we use these connections to address unmet needs? How can we improve patients’ lives?

The Connected Patient Challenge is a different type of competition—all submitters will be able to interact with the judges throughout the process, receiving valuable feedback to refine their ideas (even if they don’t end up moving forward to the final round).

A combination of crowd and judges’ votes will determine three of the six finalists, with the remaining three chosen by Boston Scientific. Finalists will compete head-to-head at a live event at Google’s Cambridge Headquarters in March 2018. More information, including a detailed timeline, is available at at the challenge site.
