Today was the Care Innovations Summit in Washington DC. If you want to read more on what’s been happening at the Care Innovation Summit, you can check out the lengthy #cisummit Twitter hashtag to hear what’s being talked about.

One of the things that seems to be sweeping Washington (I think Gingrich mentioned this in one of the GOP debates recently) is the idea of challenges. I like the idea of challenges and encouraging people to strive to do something interesting and useful and rewarding them for it. I don’t know why, but for competitive people like me, the idea of a challenge gets the juices flowing.

In the morning Ignite section of the Care Innovations Summit a number of challenges were presented. Here they are for those who like a good healthcare challenge:
Sanofi Diabetes Challenge

KP HIV Challenge

Janssen at Johnson & Johnson Connected Care Challenge

Allscripts Million Hearts Challenge

Pfizer + Janssen Alzheimer’s Challenge

HHS ONC Care Transitions Challenge

What do you think of these healthcare challenges? I think it’s great that you can earn some reward while doing something beneficial for healthcare.
