Congratulations to the six teams advancing to the final round of the Philips Wearables Challenge. These six finalists will battle it out on stage at The Martin Center at Harvard Medical School on October 26 for the chance to win the $10,000 cash grand prize.
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.
The Philips Wearables Challenge is a call for novel solutions to predict early signs of patient deterioration in order to prevent hospital readmission and escalation in care throughout the patient journey. What cutting edge technologies and systems — wireless wearable sensors, connected devices, continuous, real-time monitoring, data analytics, etc. — can be deployed to facilitate early, appropriate interventions? How can they create actionable information to improve patient outcomes, without burying busy clinicians under too much data?
Do you have connected health or mHealth research results to share with an international audience? Would you like to present your findings in a poster format to more than 3,000 health and industry leaders? Are you eager to be in Boston, a hub of health and innovation, in October?
CHIC invites competitors to submit early-stage ideas and technology-enabled solutions that challenge the status-quo of care delivery for chronic disease management.
This is an open call for on the ground solutions or ideas that are creating impact, big and small, in the changing environment of medicine. The challenge is specifically looking for innovative ways to deliver care, new ways to connect patients with their own data and the care team, and interesting use of medical devices and wearables to gather data.
We're incredibly excited to announce the winners of the 2016 MedTech Boston 40 Under 40 Healthcare Innovators from Boston and beyond. Our list includes physicians, entrepreneurs, policy makers, students and more—but the key is that they're all committed to changing our healthcare system for the better.
