Instant testing for sore throats wins CIMIT prize
Date:7/8/2010

Competition

CIMIT CEO John A. Parrish, MD stated, "This nation-wide annual competition is designed to encourage graduate and undergraduate engineering students to develop creative technological solutions that could enhance the delivery of care at the frontlines of medicine. Each project has the potential to create tools that help the physician, benefit the patient and generally improve the delivery of care."

The national competition was open to graduate and undergraduate engineering students from accredited engineering programs. In particular, the primary care prize offers the next generation of visionary engineers a unique opportunity to leverage ubiquitous technologies in a patient-centric way. The CIMIT Prize competition seeks to accelerate this pace of change by recognizing and rewarding innovative, collaborative student-lead teams whose novel approaches have the potential to impact the delivery of care.

Areas of particular interest include improving access to medical care, leveraging the skill of caregivers, automating routine tasks, increasing efficiency of workflow, supporting patients dealing with chronic diseases, increasing compliance with care protocols, and developing tools to enhance the physician-patient relationship.

The competition attracts a wide variety of ideas for technology-enabling approaches to improve primary care. Each year, CIMIT awards $400,000 in prizes to the most innovative of these student-led technology projects. With these 2010 awards, the portfolio of student-led primary-care projects supported by CIMIT Prize money has expanded to seven, with a total of $800,000 in prizes to date. In 2009, CIMIT rewarded four novel approaches that promote a patient-centric approach to primary care. That year's technologies included: Collaborhythm - Primary Care Teamwork Anywhere at Any Time. iAbetics Web 2.0 Diabetes Management System. Aptazime-Mediated Signal Transduction, and a Novel Therapeutic Game
