Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common, chronic condition that affects approximately 16 million adults in the US alone. AD is an inflammatory skin disease, characterized by itching and recurrent lesions. Associated with unpredictable flares, AD can result in intense itch and pain that may lead to difficulty sleeping, anxiety/depression, work absenteeism, and impairment of daily activities.

To help address the myriad challenges faced by patients with atopic dermatitis and their providers and caregivers, Eli Lilly and Company (“Lilly”) is pleased to announce the Transforming Atopic Dermatitis Care Innovation Challenge (“the Challenge”) to help identify innovative new ideas for patients living with this condition. The goal of the Challenge is to discover potential solutions for enhancing the quality of life and patient care for people with inflammatory skin diseases. Sample topics include disease burden management, diagnosis and monitoring, care enhancements, and clinical support tools.

The Challenge is a call for novel solutions for patients with atopic dermatitis, their caregivers, and clinicians. What cutting edge technologies and systems — mobile apps, sensors, connected devices, real-time monitoring systems, algorithms, digital games, etc. — can be deployed to enhance care for patients with atopic dermatitis?

The Transforming Atopic Dermatitis Care Innovation Challenge will be conducted in three phases: (1) launch and open submissions; (2) an initial round of judging of submissions and selection of up to five finalists from the applicable entries; and (3) a pitch event with real-time judging and the selection of a winner of the $50,000 (US) cash prize on or around December 9, 2020. In addition, Lilly may choose to work with the winner to further develop their product or concepts. See the official Challenge Terms and Conditions.
