The Health Innovation Challenge (HIC) is an initiative of the Rotterdam Municipality to develop Rotterdam as the national hotspot for healthcare innovation. Startups, SMEs and healthcare institutions are challenged to collaboratively find solutions to health challenges. As part of the HIC, MC Kinderplein is working with Get in the Ring and looking for innovative solutions that streamline internal data and questionnaire processes.

 

Kinderplein is a medical centre that provides healthcare for children and adolescents with learning and behavioral problems and developmental delay in a multidisciplinary team that has an integrated approach towards somatic, psychological and social causes and consequences in the process of diagnostics and therapeutic care. Kinderplein has offices in 3 locations and works with a team of 9 specialists.

 

To obtain relevant information from the patients and parents, and preferably also from teachers, Kinderplein is now using various (static) questionnaires and interviews, as is done by most institutions. The questionnaires are not user friendly, they are per questionnaire too limited and together inefficient, especially considering the fact that questionnaires overlap. Also, young children would be able to answer part of the questions themselves if these would be put into a different format and tailored to their age. The data that is generated by these questionnaires and patient interviews is stored internally in an electronic patient filing system. The data are available for clinical use, but not directly digitally available for analyses. Hence, epidemiological and clinical research have to be done case by case and mainly manually. This is very time consuming and costly. This immense dataset could be used for good research with clinical benefits for patients and epidemiological insights for research and policy makers.

Supported by:

THE CHALLENGE

Kinderplein is looking for a user friendly (for patients, parents, teachers and doctors) systematic, standardized portal using artificial intelligence generated software that can assist doctors and other healthcare providers/managers/scientists in clinical decision making, follow up as well as epidemiological and clinical analyses with the aim to improve healthcare for this vulnerable group of children and adolescents.

Smart/dynamic questionnaires

That can be integrated into a user-friendly platform and customized to the needs of the clinic.

AI generated (data) software

That can be used to analyze the data extracted from multiple sources. The tool should be user-friendly that can be used for follow up visits.

Decision support Health platform

That has specific applications for the psychological healthcare sector and can be customized to Kinderplein’s needs. It should help in decisionmaking and reporting, be insight driven, and be able to combine and analyze data from several sources (questionnaires, and eventually also wearables, etc).

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU

  • Co-development possibility with Kinderplein

  • Pilot contract to validate your solution with a patient test group of Kinderplein

  • Possibility of scaling (together) towards other psychological health providers

ADDITIONAL CRITERIA

You should

  • Have a working prototype or demonstrator

  • Be willing to work together towards a finished product or service within the next 12 months

  • Be able to do a pilot project in the Netherlands, and thus sometimes be present on site

  • Be able to implement the solution in a clinical setting with all its limitations and requirements (such as patient data security)

THE HEALTH INNOVATION CHALLENGE

The Health Innovation Challenge (HIC) is an initiative of the Rotterdam Municipality to develop Rotterdam as the national hotspot for healthcare innovation.
