Society for Health Systems Healthcare Innovation Competition

The SHS Healthcare Innovation Competition is the premiere event in the industry to foster, capture and nurture innovation. Want to see what the future holds for healthcare? Do you believe innovation can help fix our healthcare system? Then, come see as the finalist teams put it all out on the table during the pitch session of this year's Innovation Competition. This is an exciting, fast-paced show that you do not want to miss!

Showcase your creativity in Healthcare Systems design by working as a team to develop the conceptual design for an innovative technology or product to meet an unmet need in the healthcare marketplace.  Create a five-minute concept pitch to be presented in front of a live audience and a judging panel of industry professionals.

The pitch should present the concept design (including how it solves a particular problem/challenge which will be given four weeks prior to the Conference), describe the target market and demonstrate why the concept will be profitable (including how the concept design improves over existing designs and your team's plan for marketing the product).

There are five total judging criteria which will be equally weighted in determining a winner:

  • Innovation
  • Market and Applicability
  • Competitive Advantage
  • Presentation Quality
  • Responses to Questions

In order to fix our broken healthcare system, we must look for solutions that are not obvious. We must foster and be comfortable with innovation. The SHS Healthcare Innovation Competition is the premiere event in the industry to foster, capture and nurture innovation.
