Digital health tools have the potential to change the way we approach healthcare at the individual and population levels, from preventing health crises to better managing chronic conditions. How would you use patient or population health data, patient monitoring and/or predictive analytics to ultimately improve patient care? How can these solutions support a value-based care paradigm to improve patient outcomes, make care more efficient and ultimately lower healthcare costs?
Identify new concepts in Digital Health that can prevent health crises and better manage chronic conditions. More broadly, the Connected Patient Challenge is designed to foster a digital health innovation community where discussion with input from many sources can build strong, robust challenge submissions leading to successful, life-changing diagnostics, devices, therapies and patient management programs.
The challenge seeks to:
The Challenge is open only to individuals who are 18 years of age or older as of the date of entry, except for the following:
Simply submit your idea at the contest submission page. Voting is crowd-sourced (encourage your friends to come and vote for you!). The Official Judges will also vote after the submissions deadline.
No, your submission can be purely at the idea stage. You don't need to have started a company, or have a prototype, or have an IRB approval already. Just explain your ideas/plans in the submission form.
The official judges will also vote after the submission deadline. Three finalists will be chosen by a combination of crowd voting and the scores of the official judges. Three finalists will be chosen at the sole discretion of Boston Scientific, regardless of judge and crowd source voting.
You may edit your entry up until someone votes or comments on it. After that, you can communicate with the judges directly to expand and refine your idea. The judges will consider all of your responses as part of the overall submission.
Yes, you can submit as many ideas as you like.
Six finalists will be chosen to pitch their ideas before a live audience and panel of judges on February 27, 2019. Winner(s) will be awarded up to $50,000 of in-kind services from Boston Scientific and Google.
Whether or not you're selected as a finalist, if you submit an idea you and a guest will get free admission to the Final Event in February.
Your ideas and concepts remain yours. Please remember that the submission platform is public disclosure.
