WHAT IS A CHALLENGE?
Health 2.0 promotes, showcases, and catalyzes new technologies in health care. The Health 2.0 Developer Challenge Program is a series of online innovation competitions (or “challenges”) and commercialization programs in which multidisciplinary teams boldly tackle the most complex challenges we face in health care, receive funding, and gain validation. The challenge platform helps organizations crowdsource solutions to the problems that are most important to them and bring attention to these issues. Health 2.0 has partnered with private, non-profit, and government organizations to run challenges and pilot programs to commercialize new technologies and provide innovation consulting.
HOW A CHALLENGE WORKS
Health technology challenges 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.
