Challenge Finalists Announced!

Over the past few weeks the first round judges have been diligently reviewing the impressive submissions of over 25 entries from universities across the nation and even a few from overseas.  The quality and volume of responses indicate a deep interest from students in identifying ways process innovation, technology enablers and a market strategy can be used to strengthen the engagement between patients and healthcare providers for better health outcomes.  It was a welcome sight by the judges and a trend the Innovate 4 Healthcare Challenge organizers look forward to seeing grow each year.

After much debate, the following eight teams were selected for the final round (in alphabetical order):

Dynamic Diagnostics
Georgetown University
Stanford University
Non‐Invasive Real‐Time Health Monitoring
University of Maryland
OptiMantra Health
University of Maryland
Play Hard, Live Long
Terry College of Business, UGA
Harvard University
So They Can Know
Johns Hopkins University
Team KeyOSK
Carnegie Mellon University

These finalists will present their solutions in person to leaders in the healthcare industry.  The Final Round Presentations and Awards Luncheon will be held on April 20, 2012 at the Smith School campus at the Ronald Regan International Trade Center in Washington, D.C. If you would like to be considered for the guest list, please email us at

Thank you to all of the participants for the hard work and creativity you put into your submissions, and congratulations and best of luck to the eight finalist teams!
