Have a Question?
For the Patient Impact Challenge, this could be any impact you perceive as patient or caregiver to friends or family.
Digital health or health information technology (IT) describe solutions that use computers and other electronic devices (e.g. smart phones) to store, access, share and automate many facets of the health care system. One way to look at it is moving from analog (paper) to digital.
The person entering the story must have experienced the impact described in the submission. If someone you care for has been impacted, you could enter a submission about the impact to you as a caregiver, but your submission cannot be about someone else’s experience.
Paid caregivers cannot enter the Patient Impact Challenge in the context of this role, although they could enter as a patient if they have personally seen an impact of digital health in their own care. If digital health has affected their career, they can enter the Career Impact Challenge.
Yes. Every story is important and unique to your circumstances and environment. Also, remember that there are draw awards in addition to judged awards, so every submission has the chance to earn an award.
Yes, as long as your submissions address the relevant challenge question for each challenge.
Yes, individuals or organizations can enter multiple submissions in the same challenge as long as each submission is unique.
We know digital health has already made an impact on the health care system, creating efficiencies and improving quality. But we want to go beyond the statistics – better understanding and sharing examples of the impact it can have on Canadians, whether in their roles as patients, caregivers, professionals, or as part of an organization or business.
Judges will see the submission and full name of the entrant. This is in order for judges to determine whether they need to declare a conflict of interest and refrain from judging a particular entry.
