Most of us agree that America’s health care delivery system is in dire need of improvement. Here is a chance to share your ideas for improving quality or decreasing costs . . . and compete for a $150,000 prize!

Harvard’s Forum on Health Care Innovation has issued the Health Acceleration Challenge to identify ideas that work and are worthy of a broader audience:

“We’re looking for proven ideas that have the potential to do great things for the U.S. health care delivery system.  It is widely known that health care innovations are much slower to disseminate than comparable solutions in other industries.  We want to help speed up the process.  What’s your innovation?”

The brief application process must be completed by September 29.  Finalists will present to industry leaders at the Forum’s April 2015 conference and will be eligible to win a portion of the $150,000 prize.

“We welcome applications from all types of people – individuals and teams, clinicians and administrators, technologists and scientists, and those inside or outside the health care industry – anyone with a proven health care innovation.  All types of organizations are invited to apply as well . . .”
