November 05, 2019 / Samara Rosenfeld

Boston Scientific launched its fifth annual Connected Patient Challenge, the company has seen a record-breaking number of submissions compared to previous years, and there’s still time for healthcare innovators to submit their ideas. The challenge, which calls on innovators to submit digital health solutions that improve care at home and help patients better manage chronic conditions, already has submissions from participants across the world. Entries have come from the U.S., Taiwan, Israel and Thailand, among other countries. Some submissions leverage artificial intelligence and the internet of things to help aging patients achieve better quality of life. Others seek to help patients manage asthma or chronic obtrusive pulmonary disease via blood pressure monitoring.
