The deadline to apply for the RWJF Emergency Response for the Health Care System and General Public Challenges is approaching FAST! The Emergency Response for the Health Care System Challenge is seeking digital tools that can support the health care system during a large-scale health crisis (pandemic, natural disaster, or other public health emergency). Examples include but are not limited to tools that can support providers, government, and public health and community organizations. The Emergency Response for the General Public Challenge is looking for consumer-facing health technology tools to support the needs of individuals whose lives have been affected by a large-scale health crisis.
How It Works:
- In Phase I, innovators submit their tech-enabled solutions addressing the challenge topic. Judges will evaluate the entries based on Impact, UX/UI, Innovation/Creativity, and Scalability. The top five teams will move onto Phase II.
- In Phase II, five semi-finalists will be awarded $1,000 each to further develop their application or tool. Three finalists will be chosen at the end of Phase II to participate in a virtual pitch and present their solutions to an audience of investors, provider organizations, and more. The grand prize winner will be awarded $25,000 for first place.
Submit your solution today to help the health care system and general public address the challenges they face during an emergency situation. Applications for both challenges are due by June 12th, 2020 11:59PM ET.
