SoftServe’s Eugene Borukhovich launches the Challenge at NHS Innovation Expo 2015
SoftServe is proud to sponsor and launch the ‘Integrated Social Care with Internet of Body Things Challenge’ in conjunction with Code4Health at the 2015 NHS Innovation Expo in Manchester, UK.
The goal of the challenge is to identify innovative and low cost ways to engage with and provide early warning signs for individuals who require social care in order to expedite an in-home intervention using the Internet of Body Things (e.g. wearables, home and environmental sensors).
The Challenge will be open for entries from September 14 until December 15, 2015 and the winner will be announced on January 15, 2016. SoftServe will work with the winning team to help build a minimal viable and visually engaging prototype over the course of 1 month after the final selection. This rapid prototyping will help the winner present their solution to appropriate stakeholders and ultimately turn their idea into reality.
“The Internet of Body Things with wearables, home and environmental sensors, and even insertable and implantable devices, as well as anytime, anywhere internet connectivity, has already made a significant impact on healthcare consumers and providers. It gives consumers the opportunity to better understand their own health and that of their loved ones.”
said Eugene Borukhovich, Senior Vice President and Global Vertical Practice Leader, Healthcare, SoftServe.
