Intel-GE-hackathon

Intel-GE Care Innovations, in partnership with MIT Hacking Medicine, StartX, and Stanford Medical School hosted its first ever hackathon on the campus of Stanford University September 19-21. The event looked to create more effective and meaningful connections between patients, clinicians, and the data collected outside the walls of the clinical setting.

Over the course of 48 hours, nine teams, comprised of computer programmers, developers, engineers, designers, clinicians, scientists, nurses, family caregivers, patients, and entrepreneurs, worked to develop and design innovative solutions to close the gap between patient consumers and their providers outside the walls of the hospital, and establishing connections that create lasting behavioral change and more informed clinical care.

At the end of the hackathon, a panel of judges chose four winning teams, with the top prize going to Team 364 whose mission is to advance the quality of care by facilitating meaningful, year-round interaction. It’s accomplished by combining use-specific kits comprising of sensors that bridge patient engagement and medical provider insight. Other winning teams focused on innovations in medication adherence, instant emotional support for cancer patients via mobile phones on a local level and real-time connections between medications taken and reactions.
