RWJF & HHS Provider Network Challenge Finalists Announced
By Ariella Cohen
The RWJF & HHS Provider Network Challenge has announced the Phase I Finalists and is moving forward! Of the 24 excellent entries to the challenge, 5 have been selected to advance to Phase II.
Congratulations to the Phase I Finalists:
This challenge focused on finding solutions that allow consumers to easily identify providers that are in their insurance network and crowdsource customer reviews for providers. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recognize that people are now faced with an abundance of options when selecting their health insurance plan and have many decisions to make.
There is a greater need than ever before for a tool that allows individuals to determine what the best insurance network is for their health care needs. This challenge called on developers and designers to create a tool that would use data to enhance the consumer experience, and offers a function that allows them to view customer feedback from patients. The Phase I Finalists exhibited many of the criteria the challenge was looking for, including creativity, innovation, a user-friendly interface, and potential to be implemented in communities and help consumers understand their insurance plan options.
Stay tuned to find out who won Phase II!
