On September 30, six teams of St. Michael’s Hospital’s all-star scientists battled it out on Angels Den Virtual for a chance to win prizes totaling nearly $500,000. They pitched their breakthrough projects to three celebrity judges, a panel of over 50 jurors and an online audience of thousands. Their aim? To change the game for COVID-19 and other tough health challenges.

THE CHALLENGE: When it comes to treating COVID-19, healthcare data can help us understand what works and what doesn’t. But right now it’s scattered across Ontario’s hospitals.


THE SOLUTION: Combine data from over 30 Ontario hospitals that treat 70 per cent of patients in the province. Then use artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyze it. The upside? With all that data, scientists and doctors can improve diagnosis, treatments, and health policies.
