Ready for a challenge - Participate in an Innovation Contest

The Context

Over the next decade healthcare will change dramatically with a shift toward empowered consumers. Two factors which are shaping the change to healthcare are:

  1. Sensors which collect data (for example, Apple Watch, Fitbit)
  2. Sharing Economy which mobilises underused resources (for example, Uber, AIRBNB)

The Challenge

How could sensors or the sharing economy help improve healthcare by putting consumers in control of their health?

The Prize

The best idea will win an Apple Watch!


Visit the Innovation Hub stall in Abercrombie Building Foyer (12-2pm on Orientation Day) and add your idea to the wall.
