BWH Hackathon Winners
We are pleased to announce the winners of the Hackathon Prizes and that the winners will be presenting at the Second Annual BWH Research Day on Thursday November 21, 2013 from 3-4PM.
BWH iHub Prize
Heart disease is a leading cause of death worldwide. The standard of care currently is for doctors to order an expensive stress test on every patient to assess their risk for a repeat heart attack. We believe that more accurate, convenient, and cost-effective data can be gathered.
MIT H@cking Medicine Prize
Lightweight, platform-agnostic, and secure application that transfers dictated text from a smartphone to any computer & Prioritas – A system that organizes clinical reports that come into a doctor’s office from various sources into a priority organized list so that doctors are no longer faced with a huge stack of reports with no idea where to start or what needs their attention right away and what can wait. By doing this we can avoid delay of care and adverse events to patients which is a major problem currently.

Harvard i-lab Prize
Technology to address values and tradeoffs for patients at the end of life using an adaptive and interactive model.
Ariadne Labs Prize
A patient is seen by a plethora of providers and healthcare professionals during a care episode, and this can span even multiple different care systems. We propose to link one aspect of this, which is emergency pre-hospital care and coordination with hospital based care by transmission of information including pictures, videos, 12-lead EKGs, etc. using a simple-to-use mobile app.
STRATUS Center Prize
Caregivers health greatly deteriorates because of their fear of leaving the bedside of their loved one. We propose to hack a cutting edge, innovative, inexpensive consumer grade bedside monitor. “The Bedside Monitor on Steroids”!
MobiDict & Prioritas
We Want Safe Care!
We seek to activate and empower in-patients to report near-misses and safety concerns. Capturing that information we can detect trends by aggregating information on a systems level while also intervening in real-time on the patient level. Our product is an application where a patient can fill out a form at any point during or after their hospital visit, after which our back end processes the data, determines and sends actionable alerts to providers, and allows hospital administrators to view high-level visualizations of the quantitative and qualitative data collected.
Best First Hack
Next step care coordination platform for mental health and substance abuse patients, specifically for use by referral centers (e.g., ambulatory centers, physician practices, in-patient psych wards, etc).
We will create a health risk appraisal for young people not engaged in health care that provides feedback on risks and appropriate recommendations in an effort to encourage evidence based preventative health care.
Community approach to healthy and active lifestyle with an incentive based point system.
