Students, clinicians, entrepreneurs, and patient advocates will compete to create transformative solutions that coordinate resources and enable caregivers of elderly patients/family members.
Teams will be judged on their proof-of-concept data mashups that prioritize options for caregivers based on patient data, targeted community resources, geographical data and technological innovations (wearables, social platforms, crowdsourcing, etc).
The prize winning pitch will improve the quality of life of caregivers and promote patient care through the use of healthcare data, community resources and emerging coordination frameworks.
