NewYork-Presbyterian Announces Winners Of The InnovateNYP Pediatric App Challenge Demo Day

NewYork-Presbyterian announced the winners of the InnovateNYP Pediatric App Challenge during Demo Day on June 9th. Sixteen teams spent ten weeks designing and developing a working application that uses technology to improve pediatric healthcare. The winning team was fhirStarters, an application which promotes medication adherence for pediatric patients. Parents can see all of their child’s prescriptions and when their child is supposed to take them, and receive reminders to administer the medications on time. Second place was awarded to Teen Screen, which doubles as a mental health screening application for teenagers between the ages of 12 and 18 and a collaboration device for patients as well as healthcare providers. NYP Care Companion placed third, with a complete chronic care management, engagement, and education application designed for both pediatric patients and their parents.

A Doctor and A Designer: Two Perspectives From The InnovateNYP: Pediatric Appathon

“No child likes to have surgery, but if this app can make the experience less anxiety-inducing for them (and their parents, too!), then I think we will have contributed greatly to providing them with the best care possible.” -Dr. Matthew Monteleone, pediatric anesthesiologist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital, "Anyone can hack, doctors too"

“If I didn’t have the photos as proof, I swear, I would think I dreamed the entire event. It went by in a blur. I genuinely never expected a win because entering the Appathon was never about that for me.”  - Rivelle Zlatopolsky, Research Coordinator for Health & AI Lab, "Anyone can hack, females included" 

NewYork-Presbyterian featured two participants of the InnovateNYP: Pediatric App Challenge on NewYork-Presbyterian's Medium channel. They are both members of the Appathon winning team, Kinder, renamed "PIP" after their first prize submission. Read Dr. Matthew Monteleone’s story here and Rivelle Zlatopolsky’s story here.
