Final Presentations and Winners – SAP TechEd InnoJam Amsterdam 2013
You can find more information on the event on our wiki page here.
Okay, the coding is done. It’s game-time. 7 teams, 6 minutes each, lots of prizes up for grabs, including the DemoJam slot and limited edition Blackberry Z10 handsets. I’ll try and give a blow-by-blow, near-realtime run down of each presentation, plus the winners afterwards. Uwe Kylau is our Master of Ceremonies. Our judges are Jan Penninkhof, Phil Loewen, Claudius Metze, and Matthieu Schapranow.
First up: team number 5. Die Healthy used a Blackberry, a heart monitor, SAP HANA, UI5, and Fiori, in creating an app to help people to stay healthy more easily. This might be the first InnoJam presentation with partial nudity, as a heart rate monitor is displayed. Data from the monitor and other sensors is sent to HANA and then to an application that can be used to get a picture of the health and the history of the wearer. Emmanuel Foissard is showing off the Fiori UI to the judges with real-time heart rate information. ‘Mary’, the persona the team used when creating the app can compare herself to other users, and receive alerts in the case of any worrying changes in her condition.
Next, it’s team 2. Cloudsitters. Their app was created with SIDS, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, in mind, to try and reduce the anxiety that new parents feel regarding this tragic condition. Because there are no known causes, just risk factors, it’s something that really preys on the mind. Their app uses wearable technology on the baby, to monitor temperature, heart rate, position, and other data to keep track of the infant. These measures are compared continuously to a healthy profile, and if this deviates then an alert is sent to your Blackberry, telling you immediately that there’s a problem. The app allows you to summon help directly, to make sure that there is no delay. The app will also collect data from children who use the device, so that in the case of SIDS, health researchers can gain information that can help to explore the cause of the condition and help prevent it in future.
Team 3 are third, and they’re Anonymous Doctors. Doctors are faced with a vast volume of new publications every year, which is impossible for one person to absorb and use. Team 3 have developed an app that allows doctors to share information with trusted colleagues to improve their diagnoses, and reduce their workload. Tag-based search lets users find relevant documents for the case they are dealing with. Articles can then be added to the case file of the relevant patient, and treatments can be applied based on that information. EMR was used in developing the app, along with UI5 and SAP HANA.
Team 7, BB7, are next. They used the persona Barbara Best (hence the name) in developing their application. Patients expect doctors to use the latest and greatest information when treating them, but sharing and balancing the knowledge of experienced and junior doctors is a barrier to this. TDC, their app, uses UI5 technology to access information that nurses have already gathered on their patients. Additional patient information can be added in the application, and procedures such as blood tests can be requested directly from it. Once the results are available, Barbara receives a notification with the results on her Blackberry. Reference values can also be accessed via the application, to compare the results for the patient. HANA allows the information to be combined with further sources of knowledge for diagnostic purposes, and clinical pathways propose a treatment for the patient. Barbara can also ask her colleagues for their opinions on the patient, directly from the app.
Team 1, B-Fit will now present their app, B-Fit. There are many fitness applications in existence. Their application wants to offer something new and innovative, with three main functions: collecting user data, scheduling check-ups with doctors, and creating fitness plans that are the key part of the app. The app uses UI5, SAP HANA, and uses a Blackberry device. You can plan different workout types, with different options within them. You can connect to your cross-trainer, for example, and the data from your workout is sent to HANA. Calorie measurements and BPM analysis are then available for the user. Fitness clubs can feed data into SAP HANA that can then be passed to health insurers, so customers can get credit and benefits for their efforts to exercise and be healthy.
Our second-last team is team 8, MyCare, comprised of SAP employees. They have their medical hats on, and they’re ready to go with their roleplay exploring patient handover during shift change at the hospital. It’s midnight, Claudio wants to get home after his shift, but he needs to hand over crucial information to Hannah. Their application helps smooth the change process, by making all the vital patient information known to the incoming staff. Bed and ward number, comments from previous doctors, and other patient information is available from the app. The app also allows patients with extra care requirements to be identified easily. An alert in the app allows patients requiring urgent help to receive the help they need on an emergency basis. They want this app data to be integrated into EMR, and to include the handover checklist directly.
Our last team is team 4, Medisight.Their app tries to address patient handover when a doctor is returning from vacation, to minimize the amount of information they need to take on board. The innovation in their app is to focus on the delta information since the doctor was last on shift. The app gives a timeline of the changes since the doctor visited each patient. Anonymous patient case histories help to suggest treatment plans for each patient in the hospital. Their app uses UI5, and can be accessed on the doctor’s favorite Blackberry device.
So, after the deliberations, the results: first up a token prize for the SAP employees who competed as team 8. They can’t participate in the main competition, but they worked hard (in a developer-free team!), and at least three of them stayed all night, so they deserve some recognition. Well done guys!
Next, it’s the stamina contest, and team number 5 wins with the highest percentage of possible tokens. Appropriately enough for a team that stayed up all night (it resembled a dinner party to be honest), they receive a coffee mug!
Now, it’s the creativity award, and it goes to BB7, and they receive a glow-in-the-dark, USB light bulb.
Feasibility and technical implementation goes to Cloudsitter, based on their choice and use of technology, and they also snag the viability award!
Desirability is the last secondary prize, and that goes to Medisight. The judges made this decision based on the last 10 seconds of their presentation, with their EMR integration.
Now, we’re into the big prizes. It’s Leo McDermott and the other Blackberry guys with their prize for the best use of Blackberry technology. The winners of the special edition Z10 handsets are B-Fit!
It’s time for the big one: InnoJam winners, t-shirt and $100 AWS voucher recipients, and DemoJam presenters tomorrow night…the judges are on stage to announce the winners. Claudius Metze announces…it’s Cloudsitter again!
Here’s a picture of our winners in their coveted InnoJam Winner t-shirts:
