Today Health 2.0 and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) are happy to officially launch the Investing in Innovation (i2) Initiative. The i2 initiative is a bold new program created by the ONC to spur innovation in health IT through the prizes, competitions, and community development.

We are introducing the i2 program today with the launch of two interesting challenges: 1.) the “Ensuring Safe Transitions from Hospital to Home Challenge”, and 2.) the “Reporting Device Adverse Events Challenge”. Both challenges are offering $40,000 in total prize money and the opportunity for the winner to demo at a major industry conference.
