Anyone interested in developing solutions for caregivers
Caregivers of elderly patients suffering from dementia face a number of barriers in providing care and assistance. Given the long-term and worsening nature of dementia, caregivers face many challenges in coordinating care, particularly when they live at a distance from the patient.
Develop a personalized solution that will improve the quality of life of caregivers for elderly patients suffering from dementia.
Multidisciplinary teams of students and healthcare professionals will work together to design and pitch a viable solution. Participants will receive coaching and mentoring from healthcare experts and entrepreneurs to ensure their end product is viable. Teams will retain all intellectual property created at the event.
Solutions will fit in one of the six futuristic mechanisms of care coordination: Human Task Routing, Do-ocracies, Socialbot Swarms, Matter Routing, Here-sourcing or Autonomous Algorithms. Click here for further information.
A panel of judges will review 10-minute pitches from each team, scoring on the potential to aid caregivers, utilization of futuristic mechanisms of care, team participation, viable business strategy, and innovation.
