Boston Scientific has launched the Boston Scientific Connected Patient Challenge, an open innovation challenge to solicit ideas and collaborations for remote patient monitoring.

The new innovation challenge is designed to elicit submissions aimed at improving patient care and driving down healthcare costs via tech including wearable, implantable or ubiquitous sensors. Top priority is for innovations that go one step further to enable data management and the decision-making process.

“We firmly believe in the power of contests like these to produce game-changing technologies that can help transform the way healthcare is delivered,” said Boston Scientific VP of Corporate Research David Knapp in a statement. “Collaboration and open innovation are at the core of Boston Scientific’s vision for the future of healthcare. By combining our industry leadership with Medstro’s vibrant online community and collaborative competition platform, we hope to inspire the next generation of digital health solutions.”
