Guidelines for Submissions

Select an aspect of a hospital visit and propose a solution that improves the patient and family experience.  Solutions should be proposals for apps or ideas that could be implemented through apps.

Submissions should be focused on operational issues (e.g., communications inefficiencies, transparency in decision making, administrative errors), not on clinical outcomes or patient comfort (e.g., better food, cable TV).

Consider the impact of your solution on the broader system of (a) patient and family; (b) hospital departments and staff; and (c) facility work flow and integration.  Draw upon your personal experiences. 

Use of data and analysis in developing the solution is strongly encouraged.  Well-researched submissions with citations and references will be rewarded.  Avoid submissions that require technology that doesn’t yet exist (e.g., advances in diagnostics, tricorders). 

Preference will be given to thoughtful, clearly communicated and polished submissions.  Please do not include HTML in your title or description.

Multiple but clearly distinct submissions per Entrant are allowed.

Requirements for Submissions

  • Requirements: Submissions can include:
    • Wireframes, storyboards or screenshots demonstrating the design and/or flow of the proposed application
    • Written material describing the proposed application
    • Video as supplementary material (3 minutes maximum)
    • Combinations of the above (see Resources)
  • Submissions must include:
    • A title or name for your submission;
    • A text description of at least one paragraph (to be entered in the Submission form);
    • If you are submitting as part of a team, the display names of each team member; and
    • If you are submitting as part of a team, the requested prize split among the team members in the event the team wins a prize.
