IT'S TIME TO DISRUPT COMMUNITY HEALTH
It's time to build healthier communities not just for some, but for all.
It's time to use technology to improve not only patient care, but the living conditions that make it possible for all people to reach their highest potential for health.
We know you are innovative in ways you might not have imagined yet. We don't doubt that you have ideas for improving health care for all. The 2019 AHA Innovation Challenge, sponsored by First American Healthcare Finance, is calling on you to develop big ideas, bold solutions and expanded alliances to disrupt community health and eliminate health inequities. This year's challenge is focused on finding new ways to use technology to address social determinants, such as food, housing, transportation and jobs, and connecting people with proper resources that meet community health needs. Ideas can range from mobile apps to artificial intelligence to data collection. The possibilities are limitless.
Top three proposals will earn $100,000 - $25,000 - $15,000 to help bring these winning concepts to life. For more information or to submit your proposal, visit aha.org/innovation-challenge.
