Today’s healthcare industry is in a constant state of evolution. As research unearths disruptive findings, patient demographics become more diverse, and technologies advance at an increasingly rapid pace, groundbreaking ideas are crucial to effecting positive change.

The eHealth Initiative iThrive Innovation Challenge
The team at eHealth has just launched an exciting new open innovation challenge seeking ideas on how health technology can improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of healthcare, and they want to hear from you. The big question is:

In what ways might we achieve better patient care and increased patient engagement at a lower cost with better outcomes through innovative technology solutions?

Participants can submit ideas in three different categories surrounding: innovative technology that advances consumer-oriented health IT; technological solutions that reduce inappropriate variation and disparities in population health management; and finally, technologies that promote meaningful exchanges of healthcare data.
