The deadline for the EHR Accessibility Module Challenge is slowly approaching, with less than two weeks to go!
Sponsored by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC), this challenge emphasizes accessibility and usability in health IT, which are high priority issues for the disabled community. A consumer-oriented system providing easy-to-use access to health information would be a valuable tool and significantly improve the health of disabled individuals. First place winners are awarded $60,000 and opportunity to demo at one of Health 2.0 premier conferences or at another national conference. The second place winner will receive $20,000 and third place, $5,000.
