The Phillips Wearables Challenge
Harvard Medical School | October 26th, 2017
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? The finalists of the online challenge will be invited to pitch their ideas in front of a live audience at Harvard Medical School on October 26th, 2017, and will be eligible to win up to $10,000 in cash prizes.
