Data Design Diabetes Challenge: Prove It!

The next edition of their challenge has been announced!  You can read about it here: http://www.datadesigndiabetes.com/blog/2013-data-design-diabetes/

Or you can read about it below… (the official post from the great folks from Luminary Labs is below)

The 2013 Data Design Diabetes Innovation Challenge – Prove It! is now open for submissions!The Data Design Diabetes Innovation Challenge will launch its third installation by joining forces with the Health Data Consortium (HDC) for this year’s challenge, Prove It!. Data Design Diabetes kicks off the HDC’s challenge series, Redesigning Data, and will ask innovators to create the evidence we need to make better decisions across the entire spectrum of diabetes.

Data Design Diabetes (DDD) asks innovators to submit Prove It! concepts that have the potential to create real change with real knowledge. The submission period is open from now until April 7, 2013, and entries must address the following:

2013 DDD INNOVATION CHALLENGE CRITERIA

  • EVIDENCE-BASED HEALTH OUTCOMES: Ability to demonstrate in an evidence-based way how the concept can improve the outcomes and/or experience of people living with diabetes in the US.
  • TARGET AUDIENCE: Ability to support one or more members of the healthcare ecosystem and provide them with data-driven tools or evidence-based insight that can help them make better contributions to staving the diabetes epidemic in the US.
  • DECISION-MAKING: Ability to illustrate how the concept can enable better data-driven decision-making at a particular stage across the spectrum of Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, from lifestyle and environmental factors to diagnosis, treatment, maintenance, and beyond.
  • DATA SCIENCE: Utilize new or traditional data methodology — such as baseline knowledge models, evidence-based practice, and predictive analysis — to create a tool that may change the landscape of diabetes management through richer insight, more timely information, or better sets of decisions.

Finalists will be selected to advance to the next round to receive mentorship from industry experts, and present their concepts at the Health Datapalooza conference in Washington, DC. From the finalists, one winning team will be selected and awarded $100,000 to further develop its solution.

Do you have an idea for the next big innovation in diabetes care? This is your chance to be selected as a finalist to participate in a virtual incubator and innovators’ bootcamp in preparation for Demo Day at Health Datapalooza IV. Submit your concept before April 7, 2013!
