Judging Process:

The judges will review each and every solution at the close of the submission period. 

They will be given the submission requirements, which you can view again here—and the judging criteria, which you can view here, and is as follows:

  • Ease of Use (20 points)
    How intuitive is the experience? Would the end user find the application easy to use and understand?
  • Design (20 points)
    Does the prototype have an appealing aesthetic? Is its interface clear and simple?
  • Benefit for Users (20 points)
    Would the intended end user actually use this application? What would users gain from their experience using the application?
  • Creativity and Innovation (20 points)
    Is this a new idea? Does technology like this already exist? How innovative is the concept?
  • Overall Quality (20 points)
    Does it address any of the issues and problem areas noted by NYP on the Open Challenge website? Is the submission practical and useful to the hospital and patients? Is this a tool that could be easily implemented?


The first round of judging will yield three top finalists that will be invited to present in person at the Demo Day event:
