Catalyst @ Health 2.0 and The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation are seeking digital solutions that can support the needs of individuals affected by a large scale health crisis. As the current COVID-19 pandemic illustrates, individuals in communities affected by large-scale emergencies must contend with multiple challenges.

The public faces a deluge of information, misinformation, and recommendations. In addition, they may lack access to vital resources like health care, medications for chronic conditions, emotional support, food, and shelter. Lack of credible, easy to understand information and resources during an emergency may have potentially life-threatening implications for individuals and their communities.

Example Solutions for General Public Challenge:

  • Solutions that help consumers understand clinical guidelines/recommendations during an outbreak
  • Apps that connect consumers with resources (e.g. cleaning supplies, medications, testing capability) during an emergency or disaster

Can you build a health technology tool to support the needs of individuals affected by a large-scale health crisis? Submit your solution today.

Applications for the Emergency Response for the General Public Innovation Challenge are due June 12th, 2020 11:59PM ET.

Catalyst @ Health 2.0 (“Catalyst”) is the industry leader in digital health strategic partnering, hosting competitive innovation “challenge” events, as well as developing and implementing programs for piloting and commercializing novel healthcare technologies.
