Challenges


What is a challenge?

Challenges allow healthcare organizations to crowdsource new concepts and technologies to address the problems that are most important to them and bring attention to these issues. We have partnered with private, non-profit, and government organizations to run  challenges and pilot programs to commercialize new technologies and provide innovation consulting. Challenges questions are posed to a broad community of developers, designers, entrepreneurs, and others interested in the health sector. Over the course of a challenge (typically 3-6 months), teams self assemble and develop novel technological solutions to health care problems. Teams may create software and hardware solutions such as web and mobile applications, visualizations, sensor systems, and data models. Submissions are evaluated by a panel of expert judges and awarded non-dilutive funding, recognition, support, and partnership opportunities with the sponsoring organization.

What is a Code-A-Thon?

Code-a-thons are live events that bring together top developers, designers, health care professionals and entrepreneurs to prototype innovative applications and tools to foster health and wellness. Starting in 2010, we’ve helped teams assemble quickly around challenges and datasets to create magic. Participants eagerly garner insights from one another, speakers, and sponsors about datasets, APIs, and potential directions. Within 36 hours, teams have developed a concept and prototype. They pitch their prototypes to their peers and panels of expert judges. Our prizes, money and more, go to the best of the best. For participants, code-a-thons are always a great way to meet like-minded innovators and sharpen skills under pressure. In a number of cases, these team go on to build their next venture around their early prototypes. Sponsor companies have gone on to work with teams to develop new products and discover new talent
