PHA Member CareInnovations is hacking away the path to better patient engagement

The Population Health Alliance’s member Intel-GE Care Innovations™, a pioneer in connecting the care continuum to the home, in partnership with MIT Hacking Medicine and StartX, will host its first ever hackathon aimed at creating more effective and reliable connections between patients, clinicians, and the information that can improve the quality and cost efficiency of healthcare.

“The PHA Population Health Management Framework goes through Identification, Assessment, Stratification, Engagement, Interventions and Measurement. Each piece is critical, but one of the most perplexing is engagement,” said Fred Goldstein, PHA Executive Director.

“While we at PHA are working on defining and establishing a measure for engagement through one of our Quality and Research Workgroups, one of our members, CareInnovations an Intel-GE Company is challenging entrepreneurs, physicians, designers, scientists, and those simply wanting to make a difference in healthcare to come up with innovative solutions through a hackathon.”

The event will be hosted on Stanford University’s campus September 19-21 and will feature keynote addresses by health innovation experts Dr. Jacob Reider, Deputy National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, and Dr. Lyle Berkowitz, Associate Chief Medical Officer of Innovation at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, experienced in innovative and disruptive uses of information technology.
