A challenge is a project in which multidisciplinary teams are tasked with building technology solutions that address issues identified by a sponsoring organization, such as a non-profit, foundation, or for-profit company. Developers, designers, patients, providers, health care organizations, and anyone else interested in health care are invited to take part in the challenge. Winning teams have been awarded prizes that range up to $250,000.
