From Alzheimer's Daily News:


(Source: USAgainstAlzheimer's) - The Geoffrey Beene Gives Back Alzheimer's Initiative today announced the winner of the Alzheimer's Challenge 2012.


The winning team,Team Ginger.io, of Cambridge, MA, was awarded $175,000 to help develop their idea for a behavioral analytics platform using a combination of a mobile phone application and web-based dashboard.

 

The solution links ongoing monitoring of Alzheimer's patients' behavior relevant to their mood, memory, and functional status to health care professionals who are also provided with diagnostic tools and treatment options to streamline therapeutic response time. Patients also get a digital window into their own brain health.

The Alzheimer's Immunotherapy Program of Janssen Alzheimer Immunotherapy and Pfizer Inc. sponsored and provided program support and funding for the Alzheimer's Challenge 2012.
