The Palo Alto Medical Foundation’s (PAMF) David Druker Center for Health Systems Innovation is inviting communities to develop new ways to help seniors age successfully through the linkAges™ Developer Challenge and Accelerator Project.

PAMF has embarked on an initiative to create a new paradigm in the way we think of health and healthcare by actively creating and building a highly functional, coordinated and scalable ecosystem to sustain Successful Aging - linkAges™. It will address the physical and social determinants of health, leveraging social services and caregivers already in the community, and partnering with professional healthcare teams - linkAges™.

“Successful aging is about much more than health care,” Dr. Tang said. “It requires a supportive ecosystem of social connections and resources to assist in a variety of daily-living activities. We call this community ecosystem linkAges – linking across generations. We believe it takes a village – a combination of caregivers and community social services working together with professional healthcare teams to create a partnership that supports a vibrant and fulfilling senior community.”

The Big Problem: Health care for seniors is characterized by fragmented services, high cost, and suboptimal outcomes. It ignores critical aspects of quality of life that significantly impact health, particularly social and behavioral determinants. Each day for the next 18 years over 10,000 Baby Boomers in the U.S. turn 65 every single day. For instance, In 1990, 1 in 8 residents of Santa Clara County was over age 60. By 2010, that grew to 1 in 6. By 2030 it will be over 1 in 4. A vast majority of rapidly growing senior population expresses the desire to age independently in place in their homes and communities. Yet, many face an array of challenges; complex health issues, potential for social isolation, and difficulty accessing existing community resources

Problem to Solve:

  • Find better ways to ensure that everyone has access to excellent health care – whenever and wherever they need it.
  • Move from acute and sick-care focus in current health care system - neither adequately nor cost effectively meets needs.
  • Create systems capable of changing the health behaviors of individuals, and the health environment.
  • Drive active community engagement to support individuals to be healthy and sustained at home
  • Shift from focus on responses to crises, treating an acute health event, to systems that enable preemptive action through signal detection

Total Prizes:
The individual or team that submits the wining application will win $5,000 and the chance to participate in a six-month accelerator program the second place time will win $3,000 and the third place team will win $2,000.

The winner of the Developer Challenge will be offered the opportunity to bring their solution into the Innovation Center Accelerator, interface the solution with our linkAges system and be supported to validate the integrated build in real world situations.

We believe the opportunity to work with us in this way has significant value, and expect the winner to be willing to commit to the ongoing development and maintenance of their solution.

Description

The developer challenge is focused one of the key linkAges system components “signal detection,”, tracking and interpreting data that will forewarn of impending events with the potential for significant negative consequences.

We are asking developers to explore Signal Detection, the creative detection and use of signals of physical and social health of our seniors to proactively improve health outcomes and quality of life.

We are particularly interested in community-based signals that are not currently captured and leveraged within the traditional clinical care setting:

  • Select signals they believe are important and relevant to senior health and quality of life
  • Prototype creative systems in which those signals could be detected, analyzed and meaningfully visualized by appropriate parties
  • Show what actions would be taken as a result
  • Demonstrate how that would improve the health of a population of seniors in the community.

The PAMF Innovation Center is looking for expansive, outside-the-box thinking, so this is a place for BOLD ideas. We are looking for developer teams who are aligned with our Successful Aging mission and share our passion for disruptively innovative solutions.

Challenge Deliverables:
We expect participants to deliver a working prototype of their proposed solution that addresses the problem to solve and meets the requirements outlined in the Challenge Description.

Further details will be provided as part of the Challenge briefing process.

Fit with LinkAges Functional Design and System Architecture:
It is important that the Challenge solutions have the potential to interface with our system architecture.

We expect participants to deliver a working prototype of their proposed solution that can fit with our overall system design:

Some features of this system have already been created and are interfaced operationally with other components:

  • Clinical System (Electronic health record, Personal health record)
  • User Profiling (Basic “member” profiling of seniors and caregivers)
  • Signal Detection (Simple signal detection)
  • Management of Intelligence (Decision support to determine personal needs)
  • Micro communities (Engaging resources in the community to assist others with their individual needs)
  • Resource matching (Link users to trusted resources evaluated to be of value to their personal needs)

Integration of the components within the linkAges Senior Aging System will become increasingly important as the system expands, and if we are to achieve the overall objectives of the Program.

To this end, we propose a systems architecture that allows seamless, integrated, interoperable functionality created from data sources, components and services.

The proposed architecture specifies the following:

Systems interfacing: We propose to use the simplest architecture possible to meet the system requirements. We will uses services oriented architecture when state management is important, however where possible we will adopt a Representational state transfer (REST) model.

For cross platform functionality, we are seeking to utilize HTML5 where appropriate.

Security: Security of Protected Health Information through HIPAA compliance and OpenID for authentication

Terminologies: Healthcare systems make use of standard terminologies to provide shared definitions of diseases, conditions, procedures, medications etc (ICD9/ ICD10, CPT, SNOMED, RxNorm)

Data Models: The System will allow for the use of standard data models such as HL7 CDA, IHE, but only require these where their adoption adds value

  • Outline where humans play a role in your system and specify who these people are and the roles they play
  • Describe the key components within your system: signal detection devices, interfaces, data stores, etc.
  • Provide a network or system diagram to show how the components and humans interface

Participating in the 3 Month Challenge:
The 3 month Challenge forms an important part of a 9 month “challenge to accelerator” initiative to harness the creativity of the developer community to help drive innovative components of the linkAges system as described in the “Challenge Description”.

The solution will need to demonstrate that it helps us take a quantum leap forwards in our ability to capture, interpret and respond to signals that give us deep meaningful insights to the daily living trajectories of individual seniors. We want to be able to act on the intelligence provided to pre-empt events with negative or costly consequences.
