Would love to see some BetaNYC minds work together on this!
The goal of the NYS Health Innovation Challenge is to create technology-driven solutions that enable consumers, employers, public health experts, communities and purchasers to explore quality, charges and costs data for medical procedures provided by NYS inpatient hospital facilities. The "Healthy Connections = Healthy Communities" solutions may be web-, mobile- or desktop-based and built with information found at Health Data NY, OPEN NY and other open data sites (such as Health Data.gov, Data.Medicare.gov, NYC OpenData and/or APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). The solutions must present the quality, cost, and efficiency data in a format that is easy to interpret. The data and information presented in the solutions must include helpful guidance that consumers can easily understand with examples.
An independent panel of esteemed judges from such sectors as health care, information technology, academia, venture capital and others will use a rigorous set of criteria to select the winning technologies. Prizes totaling $20,000 will be awarded as follows: First Place $15,000, Second Place $3,500, and Third Place $1,500.
