Proposals Deadline: July 19th, 2018

The digital age in healthcare presents new opportunities and challenges for providers looking to engage patients, influence behaviors and enhance the patient experience for better outcomes. A reported 64% of patients rely on mobile devices to manage their health, which creates opportunities for providers to deliver treatment through digital interactions beyond the care facility. The remaining challenge for providers is making each interaction effective.

UbiCare challenges you to help us discover new ways of using smartphones as healthcare management devices. Come participate in our UX/UI Challenge to leverage technology and techniques to achieve effective, compelling and delightful interactions.

A Little About Us

UbiCare, short for ubiquitous care, is a health-tech company specializing in improving care costs and outcomes by activating patients throughout their unique health pathways. We specialize in delivering targeted communications from providers to patients throughout a care episode (e.g., a surgical procedure or having a baby), and seek to raise the bar. 


Challenge Goals:

  • Employ proven research and business uses to enhance or reinvent patient-provider digital connections by reimagining the look, feel and function of each touchpoint.

  • Inform the development and design of new digital connections (via email, text, web, apps or whatever else you imagine).

  • Implement winning ideas in the UbiCare platform.
