SUBMIT A CHALLENGE

DEADLINE: MARCH 4, 2022

Do you have a healthcare-related challenge?

 

If you have a challenge and would like to find a multidisciplinary team of innovators to help solve, then submit it here! Any healthcare challenge that you believe technology can help solve is welcome in our program. We welcome challenges from doctors, nurses, patient experts, caregivers, healthcare administrators and entrepreneurs, as well as community and industry professionals. Participants that provide challenges for the competition will be referred to as challenge champions.

How does the program work?

In obstetrics and gynecology, it's commonly a challenge being able to consolidate information from various sources together before C- sections are performed. Can you design an application able to consolidate relevant information for the surgeon before they perform a C-section?




POINT OF CARE - THIRD TRIMESTER ULTRASOUND FOR RESOURCE POOR COUNTRIES


Teams who accept this challenge will develop a portable simulated model for teaching Third Trimester - Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) in resource-poor countries that meets the ISUOG criteria. Ultimately, this model would allow for POCUS training to determine fetal position, number of fetuses, fetal heart rate, placental location, amniotic fluid volume (AFV) and fetal biometry in the third trimester of pregnancy. Rudimentary models have been attempted, but with little success. POCUS is the use of ultrasound technology to assess patients in variety of settings. Ultrasound machines have the added advantage of being portable, affordable, durable and reliable. Ultrasound imaging is the primary imaging modality for women’s health and is safe for obstetrical imaging. Simplified and standardized training on a portable model is required to ensure the systematic approach to a third trimester ultrasound examination and recognition of treatable anomalies in developing countries. Maternal mortality remains elevated in these countries. About 830 women die from pregnancy — or childbirth — related complications around the world every day. Most causes are preventable. The ability to use ultrasound in the setting of third trimester point of care screening in developing countries would positively affect delivery planning.
