Winners selected for the annual MEDICA App COMPETITION

Nov. 16, 2017

For the 6th time, MEDICA 2017 saw the world’s largest live competition for the best App-based Medical Mobile Solution for use in the daily routine of a patient, a doctor, or in the hospital. The MEDICA App COMPETITION 2017 was part of the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM on Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017.

Developers from all over the world submitted their App-based Medical Mobile Solutions. Only fifteen submissions were selected by the judges for the final judging round, which included a live app pitch at MEDICA.

The pitch itself happened live on stage as part of the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM in hall 15. Each developer spokesperson had 3 minutes to pitch their App-based Medical Mobile Solution. Another 2 minutes were reserved for the jury to place questions. After all 15 presentations the jury deliberated and selected the winner.

First Place: iSikCure is a mobile platform for users to conveniently seek, find, and pay for health services and medicines in the Africa market. Users pre-pay participating providers by one of six ways: Cash, mobile money, credit card, insurance, self-help group wallet, and MedCoins earned by adhering to treatment. Users are guaranteed better prices, quality, and convenience. They liken iSikCure to LinkedIn for checking out a doctor.
