Have you heard of The Hoosier Healthcare Innovation Challenge???  It is the first-of-its-kind event that promises to bring together some of the most innovative leaders in Indiana's robust healthcare, technology, and entrepreneurial communities. It is exactly this type of cross-sector collaboration we believe will improve patient care, reduce healthcare costs, and solidify Indiana's standing as the premiere location for health IT innovation.

This event has been created in partnership with executives from major Healthcare organizations in Indiana including St. Vincent’s, IU Health, Community, Franciscan, and is being sponsored by many key players in the industry such as HIMSS Indiana, Indiana Health Information Exchange, CoreTech Revolution and many others.  Teams will work on developing and building products that are designed to solve many of the challenges faced by HIT in today’s market and sponsoring companies are there to provide support and assistance.  This event is modeled after the Federal Healthcare Innovation Challenge and makes it easier for groups in the IT industry to enter the HIT market.

The event will take place on July 13th from 8-5pm at IUPUI as a catalyst to get the groups talking and projects conceptualized.  Please join CoreTech on July 13th as we build upon Indiana's proud tradition of innovation in healthcare IT. With your participation we can begin to the lay the foundation for the next generation great healthcare innovators.
