The European Commission, led by the European Innovation Council and in close collaboration with the EU member states has hosted a pan-European The EUvsVirus Hackathon to develop innovative solutions for coronavirus-related challenges on 24, 25 and 26 April.
In collaboration with private and public partners from Europe and beyond, the organizers have awarded 117 out of 2160 solutions. The winner team of the challenge domain Health & Life has been announced “Team Discover”.
They have developed a solution that enables a highly scalable patient monitoring system that minimizes physical contact between nurses and patients, which also leads to smaller shortage of protective gear. Instead of occasional visits, such device measures vital parameters real-time and uploads each patient’s data into a central server. With the help of the dashboard, doctors and nurses can oversee hundred times more patients, while our automatic alert functionalities make it possible to diagnose deteriorating cases instantly and to reach quicker reaction times.
