Connected Patient Challenge - Final Showdown!
Location: Google Cambridge • Boston Common Room • 355 Main Street - 5th Floor • Cambridge, MA 02142
Date/Time: Thursday, March 9, 2016 at 5:30pm
Since September, clinicians, engineers, patients and entrepreneurs from around the world have been submitting their ideas to improve patient outcomes, increase efficiency in delivering care, and drive down the cost of care through the use of Big Data or Data Analytics. In January, the online portion of the Boston Scientific Connected Patient Challenge closed with 46 impressive submissions!
From these 46 submissions, 6 finalist teams will be selected, via a combination of crowd-sourced voting and online judge scoring, to pitch their ideas in front of a live audience and panel of judges at Google Cambridge.
Please join us on Thursday, March 9th at 5:30pm for a cocktail & appetizer networking happy hour, and stick around to see finalists pitch off in front of a panel of expert judges who will determine the winners "shark tank" style.
This event has limited seating so please reserve your tickets early!
Welcome and Introductory Remarks

Innovation is the right thing to do but not an intuitive thing to do well. John Abele, a pioneer in disruptive innovations focused on minimally invasive medicine and a leader in collaborative thinking to innovate, invent and deliver new products, will speak on best practices and emerging platforms. His global leadership on innovation and collaboration brings the best minds together to challenge us to develop both cognitive and social skills … innovating beyond what any one of us can do alone. The Connected Patient Challenge is fully embraced by John and peer innovation thought leaders.
