Covid-19 Innovation Challenges by Innoget posted this Technology CallSeeking nurse-led ideas from nurses and nursing students around the world focused on improving COVID-19 patient careNurses have always been critical partners on the frontlines of care, and the backbone of our healthcare system. The COVID-19 pandemic has raised new challenges for nurses and health workers and brought into focus the obstacles that they face around the world, every day. The power of nurse-led innovation and know-how may be more critical than ever when developing potential solutions amid a global crisis. With extensive patient experience, nurses’ ideas have the potential to profoundly improve human health. In connection with our overall commitment to supporting frontline healthcare workers amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Johnson & Johnson is proud to continue the Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenges series with a new challenge inspired by the NurseHack4Health: COVID-19 Virtual Hackathon where over 500 nurses, healthcare professionals, and tech enthusiasts convened virtually to help ideate potential solutions for COVID-19 health challenges. This QuickFire Challenge is open to all nurse innovators, and aims to help nurture early-stage ideas from the frontlines of COVID-19 by celebrating, supporting, & mentoring the nurse innovators behind them. Introducing the Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge in COVID-19 Patient Care together with the American Organization for Nursing LeadershipTM (AONL) and the Society of Nurse Scientists, Innovators, Entrepreneurs, & Leaders (SONSIEL). Nurses from around the world are invited to submit ideas aiming to improve COVID-19 patient care. The nurse innovators with the best idea(s) will receive up to $100,000 in grant funding, mentoring from experts across the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies, and access to the Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JLABS ecosystem to help bring their ideas to life. As innovators on the frontlines of healthcare, nurses have the power to profoundly change lives. Johnson & Johnson has the scale, resources and know-how to help move them forward. Put these two together, and that changes everything. We have never stopped and never will stop advocating for, elevating and empowering nurses as innovative, critical leaders on the frontline.
