Help Us Build a Hospital in the Cloud
MDP INVITES ENTREPRENEURS, DEVELOPERS, HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS, AND INNOVATORS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO STEP UP TO THE CHALLENGE OF BUILDING CLOUD-BASED SOLUTIONS THAT SOLVE HOSPITALS’ BIGGEST PAIN POINTS.
“Hospitals, from the smallest critical access facilities to leading academic medical centers, are starved for disruptive, nimble technologies that can improve care quality, maximize provider efficiency, and reduce costs. For this challenge, we welcome anyone with a novel approach to fixing what’s broken—big or small, radical or simple. The future of healthcare depends on entrepreneurs overcoming the industry’s notoriously high barriers to entry. That’s why we built the More Disruption Please program—to inspire a new generation of apps and services that will challenge and revolutionize the way providers and hospitals work.”
- Jonathan Bush, President & CEO, athenahealth
The challenge will kick off on January 5, 2016 and remain open through April 1, 2016. A panel of industry experts will evaluate submissions, with winners announced on April 12th. The individual or team behind the best innovation will receive $10,000 in cash, a round-trip flight to Boston to meet with athenahealth executives, and the potential for partnership and/or investment via the MDP program. Cash prizes will also be awarded to the runner-up, honorable mentions, and a crowd-sourced People’s Choice finalist.
