In our Allscripts App Challenge Interview series, we have today Jonathan Baran, the CEO of HealthFinch.
The Allscripts Open App Challenge, which awarded $750,000 to 20 applications, wrapped up earlier this year. The competition lives on as a huge success and a model for other companies betting on “open” strategies. We wanted to take the opportunity to share some insights gathered from the Sponsor and Winner of competition, and will be running a series of interviews with challenge participants over the next few weeks.
SVP of Health 2.0 Jean-Luc Neptune announced the winners of the recent San Francisco code-a-thon. The two day event was sponsored by the office of the National Coordinator and Optum. The winners, Team Edge Interns, successfully addressed the theme of “power to the patient”, helping patients understand their health data and benefits through their platform “Mind Mentor.” Mind Mentor addresses the stigma of psychiatric care such as surveys and the like.
The Health 2.0 team from New York explained what they do as the Developer Challenge Team; essentially making it easy for sponsor organizations to run innovation competitions. They spoke of commercialization through Pilot Health Tech NYC, product development with Allscripts, and their collaboration with Blue Button Co-Design.
Microsoft and Health 2.0 team up to review the history of Microsoft and the goals and evaluation criteria for this developer challenge.
The Health 2.0 Developer Challenge has given away nearly $2 million in prizes to tackle complex healthcare problems through online competitions and live code-a-thons. Our winners have gone on to secure pilot programs, join accelerators, gain customers, and get recognition for their innovative solutions. This session focus on the intersection between innovation competitions and accelerator/incubator programs.
