Win $10k For Your Best Healthcare Idea

I came across an interesting idea today from the Change Now 4 Health community where they are giving away $10k for the best healthcare idea. They are calling it Innovation xChange. Here’s a summary of what they’re trying to do:

Do you want to improve the U.S. health care system? Or at least be part of the much-needed dialogue?

If you have ideas or solutions to improve the system, submit your ideas through ChangeNow4Health’s Innovation xChange and you can win up to $10,000 or have your ideas published in the e-book, Tomorrow’s Health Care.

The Innovation xChange is looking for practical ideas and suggestions for improving the health care system. All participants in the system, from providers and health plans to consumers and government, are encouraged to join in the discussion.

$10k isn’t a ton of money, but for just submitting an idea it’s not too bad. It’ll be interesting to see what happens with the contest and what kind of creative ideas come out of it. I wonder if any EMR applications or EMR features will make it into the contest.

  • “By submitting an idea to the Innovation xChange, you are giving ChangeNow4Health a free, perpetual, and non-exclusive license to practice or further develop any idea submitted. Do you agree?”

    Uhm, NO?

  • Seems like a good deal for me for someone who isn’t interested in developing the idea themselves. Might as well take the $10k and run, because if someone doesn’t want to or have the skills to build the idea then it’s worth nothing. That makes $10k a great deal.
