Could your early stage digital health company use a champion in the form of an internationally renowned healthcare institution? Or access to the foremost experts in the space? 

For four years, The Challenge has brought together some of the sharpest, most dynamic and highest-potential early stage companies in the Health IT market to compete for a chance to present their technology at Cleveland Clinic’s Medical Innovation Summit

This year, Cleveland Clinic, HIMSS, and HealthXL are converging their networks, market knowledge, and clinical expertise to find the company that is best positioned to push healthcare into new realms of payment reform, care access, patient engagement, or operational efficiency. 

How it Works 

The Challenge will be a three-tiered competition. Contestants will enter the competition with a 90-second video submission. Semi-finalists will be invited to do an online presentation. A panel will then select the final four companies to present at the annual Medical Innovation Summit. At the Summit, finalists will present in front of a live audience and a panel of sharks, made up of subject matter experts and investors. The panel and audience will vote to name the Challenge Winner, who will then be granted exclusive opportunities to partner with Cleveland Clinic to help you to validate, optimize and streamline your technology to more patients and providers.

The Prize: 
  • Two complimentary tickets to HealthXL's Pittsburg Global Gathering event. 
  • Expert guidance from an esteemed team of clinical experts at Cleveland Clinic.
  • Presence in the Innovation Live Zone at HIMSS18
  • Year round exposure and access to meeting space at the HIMSS Innovation Center
  • Cube in the Innovation Hub at MIS2018.
