Patients managing chronic conditions often suffer from more than one diagnosis, and live with the constant reminder that they are “sick”. They want to be engaged in their care and feel “normal”. Patients also may need to manage multiple medications, which may have different guidance for administration and storage e.g. take on an empty stomach; take with a light meal; take 2x/day; take every 12 hours; store in the refrigerator, etc. They want to simplify their life.

On the other hand, physicians are interested in additional data that shows successful disease management and patient adherence and compliance over time. Currently, this data is nearly impossible to extract reliably from clunky, electronic medical records or short office visits.


We’d like to leverage the wealth of patient data (e.g. biometric, mood, adherence to medications; symptom tracking, etc.) to:

A) support patients in proactively managing their disease(s)

B) provide the physician with valuable inputs and trends over time.

Imagine yourself diagnosed with a chronic disease such as high cholesterol, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, hypertension or others. A new technology has been developed to help you manage the disease and share information with your doctor.

Submit the following:

1. What is this technology? Where does it live? How does a patient interact with it?

2. What information does it track and how does it collect this data? (active inputs vs. passive data collection)

3. As a patient, what would you want to learn from this technology?

4. How would you share this data with your physician? With your network?

5. In what scenarios would you use it?

Assume this technology has access to a wealth of data (your health history, biometric data, symptoms, and medication usage trends). Feel free to leverage any platforms or systems (hardware, software, packaging, mobile, wearables, drones, 3d printing, facial recognition, etc).

    Submissions will be graded on the following criteria:
  • Meets Deliverables
  • Creativity
  • Clarity
