Overview:

Emergency Response for the Healthcare System Innovation Challenge

Can you create a digital tool supporting the health care system (including but not limited to providers, government, and public health and community organizations) during a large-scale health crisis (pandemic, natural disaster, or other public health emergency)?

During a large-scale health crisis, the health care system (including but not limited to providers, government, and public health and community organizations) is faced with a sudden increase in patients who need help. Digital tools can assist the health care community as it adapts to quickly changing circumstances and needs by addressing multiple categories:

  • Capacity management: The ability to treat large numbers of people quickly.
  • Clinical integration: The ability to coordinate patient care.
  • Communication: The ability for providers internally and externally within a health care system to share information and collaborate with each other.
  • Data analytics, tracking, and visualization: The ability to easily collect and understand information.
  • Data exchange: The ability to share information among providers such as number of available beds, supply shortages, etc.
  • Mental health tools for providers: Tools that address the mental health needs of providers such as burnout.
  • Population health: Tools for providers to address the health of a community as a whole.
  • Preparedness: Tools to prepare for future emergencies.
  • Resource management: Tools to track and shift resources as needed.
