Looking for some money to save your city's budget? Or to ease the way for your agency? If you and your co-workers have been noodling about how you would do health reform if you were in charge, you've got a chance to win $10 million.
That's what's in the X Prize, a first-of-its kind competition that will focus on "reinventing the health care system in a bold, measurable and scientific fashion to enable dramatic improvement in health care value in the United States."
It's being sponsored by the X PRIZE Foundation, WellPoint, Inc. and the WellPoint Foundation. (Yes, the same X PRIZE people who in 2004 ponied up the money for the first privately built spacecraft to enter orbit.)
Here's X PRIZE CEO Peter Diamandis explaining why his group has decided to offer a reward for reforming healthcare:
The prize, the sponsors say, is "focused on improving health care value through optimal health. The proposed design will align and improve care within communities and proactively assist individuals in optimizing their health in a way that reduces overall costs."
Simple, right? Well, maybe it's slightly easier than building your own orbital spacecraft...
