Emergency Response for the Public Innovation Challenge
Can you build a health technology tool to support the needs of individuals affected by a large-scale health crisis (pandemic, natural disaster, or other public health emergency)?
Digital health solutions are in a unique position to help consumers navigate information, find needed resources, and more during these difficult times. For example, during the COVID-19 pandemic apps and digital tools are connecting individuals to emotional support, educational resources, and health care without person to person contact, helping to limit the spread of the virus.
- Solution that helps consumers understand clinical guidelines/recommendations during an outbreak.
- App that connects consumers with resources (e.g. cleaning supplies, medications, testing capability) during an emergency or disaster.
- Technology that address consumers’ physical and mental well-being during and following emergencies including:
- Behavioral/emotional health.
- Physical care for injuries, supporting chronic conditions.
- Food security and/or shelter resources.
- Mobile tool that allows consumers to alert their loved ones and healthcare providers of their wellbeing/needs.
