4 startups win Children's National, Oracle Health's digital pediatric competition

The Bear Institute, a pediatric health IT collaboration between Washington, D.C.-based Children's National Hospital and Oracle Health, has named four startup companies as the winners of its second annual pediatric digital health innovation competition. 

The competition, dubbed the Bear Institute Pediatric Accelerator Challenge for Kids, allows startups to share their innovations and receive feedback from judges while competing for a chance to win an on-site pilot and software development support, according to a Jan. 17 release from Children's National. 

Here are this year's winners:

  • PigPug Health: A company that is using neurofeedback and artificial intelligence to help children with ADHD and autism become more socialized.

  • Global Continence: A company that created a device that can help mitigate bedwetting with a neuromodulation process.

  •  PyrAmes: Its tool, Boppli, aims to provide continuous, non-invasive blood pressure monitoring and streams data via Bluetooth to a mobile device.

  • Maro: The company creates child development kits that equip children's caretakers with tools and data needed to help them navigate tough conversations with children. Some of the kits' topics cover mental health, diversity, empathy and puberty, and they can help identify mental health at-risk students in schools.
