This two-day event will feature a new platform for up-and-coming entrepreneurs to present their ideas to an audience of potential investors and partners, in hopes of earning resources and funding for their start-up efforts.
The iTHRIVE Challenge
As part of the iTHRIVE event, eHI is launching an on-line challenge calling on entrepreneurs to submit innovative proposals that tackle healthcare problems head-on, focusing on critical aspects of the eHealth Initiative 2020 Roadmap.
Winners from the online challenge will be invited to pitch their ideas in front of judges at the August event. The Challenge is modeled after the television reality show Shark Tank where up-and-coming entrepreneurs present their ideas to a panel of industry judges called “sharks”, in hopes of earning funding and other benefits for their start-up companies. An audience of investors and industry leaders will be present at the event.
The three iTHRIVE challenges involve:
– Consumer-oriented IT :Innovative technology or incentives that advance consumer-oriented health IT and enhances a patient’s ability to manage their health.
– Population health management – Technological solutions that reduce inappropriate variation, reduces disparities and rewards innovation in population health management.
– Interoperability between providers, payers and across the delivery system – Innovative technology/approaches to meaningfully exchange healthcare data and interoperate.
