UW Health Innovation Challenge - 2015/2016

Innovations in health and healthcare that promote, impact, and monitor health are creating a paradigm shift in our approach to healthy living; this new UW Health Innovation Challenge (HIC) will build on the strengths of the University of Washington to provide a platform for interdisciplinary student teams to work on new solutions to existing problems, new approaches to helping people live healthier lives, new opportunities for care and treatment, new products/services to market. Challenges spark creativity, design thinking, novel solutions, and the potential for new companies.

This new Health Innovation Challenge will:

  1. Launch with a new class, ENTRE 579/490 Health Innovation Practicum in fall quarter 2015.
  2. Provide small amounts of prototype/working model/care pathway funding to student teams in the challenge. While poster sessions are great for conveying research ideas, designing and building a prototype or working model moves the concept closer to the real world.
  3. Enlist health industry and product design experts as coaches and mentors to the student teams to provide technical expertise and advice.
  4. Require that teams write a 5- to 7-page business summary that delineates the problem, solution, the market potential, competition, the IP landscape, and the initial financials.
  5. Culminate with the CHALLENGE in spring 2016, when students pitch their ideas, demo their prototypes, and respond to judge questions.
