Reimagining the intersection of healthcare and automotive technology

In an effort to expand the boundaries of patient monitoring, Ford Motor Company and Henry Ford Health System are challenging the employees of both companies to find effective solutions using the automobile to facilitate connected health monitoring. The purpose of this challenge is to invite Ford Motor Company and HFHS employees to submit concepts that utilize the automobile and wearable devices as components providing an effective health and wellbeing program for customers and patients of all ages and conditions. The concepts should make use of emerging wearable, mobile and web technologies, and envision new in-vehicle use-cases of the data recorded by these technologies through mobile applications and websites or other types of user interfaces.
