Flip the Patient Challenge

Can you design, develop and deploy connected health solutions by collaborating with Patient Experts?

HIMSS (including HIMSS Corporate Division and PCHAlliance) has partnered with WEGO Health to bring you the Flip the Patient Challenge. This challenge aims to demonstrate how the knowledge and lived experience of patients and caregivers can help connected health companies design and deliver solutions that are truly patient-centered.

We are seeking proposals from all HIMSS Corporate and PCHAlliance members that reflect novel and inspiring new ways of working with one or more expert patients on some aspect of your technology design, development and deployment. Not a member? Learn more about joining HERE 

Examples include:

Design: Capture patient insights to advance design thinking, including rapid prototyping and/or continuous improvement that leverages patient expertise

Develop: Collaborate with patients on design sprints, user testing, content creation or other aspects of product development where patient expertise can ultimately improve the patient experience

Deploy: Engage Patient Experts to assist with content marketing, social media outreach, patient testimonials or end-user support to help ensure your products or services are adopted and utilized by the intended target audience

This #FlipThePatientChallenge is open to US-based members only* and will run in January and February 2018, with the winner to be announced at HIMSS18 Connected Health Experience on Wednesday evening, March 7th. The winner will receive $5,000 in Patient Expert consulting fees through WEGO Health.

Judging will take place from Feb 21-28, with proposals reviewed by select board members and 2017 WEGO Health Award Winners.
