The Philips Wearables Challenge

Can you propose an innovation that would predict early signs of patient deterioration and prevent hospital readmission?

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?
