The IEEE SA Transforming the Telehealth Paradigm Industry Connections Program in collaboration with the IEEE SA Healthcare and Life Sciences Practice are delighted to announce the first annual IEEE SA Telehealth Solutions Virtual Pitch Competition. The competition is designed to bring a community of technology developers, progressive thinkers, researchers and engaged stakeholders to put their best ideas forward enabling innovation by addressing the pervasive challenges impeding trust and adoption in telehealth.


The theme of the competition will focus on Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM), a subset of telehealth, enabling physicians to better monitor and care for patients in real-time in a remote location. The competition will seek solutions across the many touchpoints of the RPM experience with the goal of identifying potential opportunities to nurture ideas for global technical and/or data standards.

ReThink the "Machine" Transforming Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) to a Patient-Centered Care System: Solutions Wanted

RPM is moving beyond the concept of the device and transforming its own branch of mobile health care. This competition is seeking innovators from around the globe who are reimagining RPM as a proactive and reactive connected care system with a human-centered design on clinical and emotional needs. Submissions should be innovative yet pragmatic including solutions that will move the needle on trust in adoption in its use.

Submitted solutions should address the current challenges in the RPM arena in one or more of the following areas:

  • Technology: hardware, software, and telemetry
  • System and Services: data storage solutions and appropriate response mechanisms
  • Feasibility and Accessibility: human factor design, low-cost connectivity, and integration with other telehealth platforms
  • Enabling solutions to support the future of RPM in healthcare
