Information Session
January 19, 2022
12:00pm - 1:00pm
The pandemic has changed how we access and provide care, exacerbated racial and income inequalities in healthcare, and impacted the wellbeing of our healthcare providers. Through the support of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration and their SPRINT Challenge Grant, MeHI launched this Challenge to uncover digital health solutions that can support healthcare providers and health systems in facing new challenges to providing care. 
Up to eight applicants will be selected to participate in a three-month accelerator program run by Lever, Inc, including a series of workshops with tailored expert mentoring where participants develop their solution, business plan, and go-to-market strategy. Finalists will also be matched with cutting-edge research and development organizations in the Massachusetts Digital Health Sandbox Network. The Sandboxes will work with participants to scope projects to test and validate their solution to bring it to market faster. The Challenge will culminate in a pitch event in June 2022 where participants will pitch their product and proposed Sandbox project. 

Challenge finalists will compete for prizes worth $250,000
