WASHINGTON, Dec. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Council for Behavioral Health (National Council) has issued an eHealth Challenge. Whose game-changing healthcare technology innovation will take the prize?
Enter the eHealth Challenge — tell us about your health and wellness apps, home monitoring tools, virtual care delivery technologies, or self-management resources. The public will decide which eHealth technology they think most improves the lives of people with mental illnesses and addictions, many of whom also have heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic medical conditions.
The National Council will select five finalists and invite them to showcase their technologies at the eHealth Executive Summit in Washington, D.C. on May 7, 2014 during the 2014 National Council Conference. The eHealth Summit convenes a select group of healthcare leaders, providers, consumers, funders, policymakers, and federal administration officials to talk about digital and mobile technologies — and how new care and payment structures support technology solutions.
Finalists will receive recognition in the National Council's social media channels and an invitation to the National Council Conference (May 5-7) — an event featuring 4,000 behavioral health decision makers and buyers, 300 top-caliber speakers, 150 sessions on healthcare clinical and business practices, and 250 vendor storefronts. The video that receives the most "likes" on Facebook will be presented with the National eHealth Challenge Award and receive:
- Free exhibit booth at 2015 National Council Conference in Orlando, Florida.
- National Council Magazine article and blog post.
- National Council webinar.
The deadline for submissions is December 20, 2013. The five finalists will be announced in February 2014.
