KidPRO by DataArt Wins the Pfizer Healthcare Challenge 2017 in Berlin
Berlin, London, New York – November 16, 2017 – The Healthcare and Life Sciences practice at DataArt, the global technology consultancy, announced today that it has won the Pfizer Healthcare Challenge 2017 award for its KidPro app, in the “Adherence Solutions, Beyond Reminder Apps” category.
KidPro is a complete patient engagement solution prototype for pediatric patients that consists of two interconnected applications, one for the child, one for the parents, customizable for any clinical state.
The children’s application is gamified by an animated interactive squirrel that leads the child through the daily schedule, suggests personalized educational content and rewards for compliance. The application captures digital readings, gathers daily statistics about the child’s condition and reports it to the parental application.
The parental app guides parents throughout the treatment process and monitors the child’s condition and progress through a history of vital indicators. This provides educational content and recommendations for the child's daily routine, diet and activity. It also reminds the parents of the time for the child to take medication and scheduled doctor visits, helping to reduce the number of risk factors.
"Treatment adherence is an important issue in healthcare, and there is a fundamental need to have a product that will help solve the challenges for the youngest patients,” said Ivan Pantykin, Delivery Manager at Healthcare and Life Sciences of DataArt. “DataArt aimed to create an animated companion for children, maximizing their medication adherence and transforming it into a fun and rewarding process."
The finalists in each of three categories of the Pfizer Healthcare Challenge 2017 were honored at the Frontiers Health conference, where they presented their ideas and solutions for solving specific challenges in the healthcare technology space.
