1. Description of the challenge

Are you passionate about improving experiences? Do you have a knack for creativity and problem-solving? Join us in revolutionizing the way hospital patients receive information about their hospital visits!

In this challenge, we're tackling the issue of outdated and mundane patient information. Imagine being able to provide patients with all the essential details about their hospital visit in a way that's not only informative but also engaging and memorable.

We're seeking innovators who can develop a prototype of a service, method, or product that delivers timely and attractive information to patients exactly when they need it. Say goodbye to patients feeling lost or uninformed, and hello to a seamless hospital experience that leaves a lasting impression.

By participating in this challenge, you'll have the opportunity to make a real difference in healthcare by streamlining communication, saving time for healthcare professionals, and ultimately enhancing the overall patient journey.

Are you up for the challenge? Join us and be part of the change!

2. Expected outcome

A prototype of a service, working method, product that provides patients just in time with the correct, up-to-date information that is attractive to the patient and provides an experience that lasts.
