Surescripts Technology Challenge

Tracking influenza in real time. Chance to win $25,000 prize!
Application Deadline: July 15, 2013

Currently, public health officials rely on a number of data sources to track influenza activity; however most of the data reported are days old when accessed. The Surescripts Technology Challenge invites applicants to create an analytical engine that can use Surescripts data captured in real time to track influenza.

We are seeking individual women applicants and women team-leaders for this challenge. Men are welcome to participate as part of teams led by women. Our goal is to provide a platform and help strengthen efforts underway to encourage women to lead in the areas of technology, health and science. The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) will be serving as an advisor to Surescripts for this Challenge.

Applicants are required to submit mock-ups and navigation flow, as well as a statement of their qualifications and interest in this challenge in PDF format. Please submit your application via email to jill.mulligan@surescripts.com by July 15, 2013.
