NEW AWARDS FOR THE
2023 FOWLER SOCIAL GLOBAL INNOVATION CHALLENGE
We’re in search of bold new thinking. This is an invitation to solve the problem of medical error that harms millions of U.S. patients, kills approximately 250,000 patients, and costs billions of dollars every year. The patient safety problem falls under the UN’s Sustainable SDG #3. We’re calling on teams to envision the best technology-enabled patient safety solution that has the potential to avert patient harm and save lives and will be awarding two prizes for the best ideas. To be eligible for this prize your solution must align with one of the following five leading patient safety challenges, anywhere across the continuum of care: Medication errors, procedural/surgical errors, errors during routine patient care (e.g. pressure ulcers, blood clots, falls), infections and diagnostic error. We encourage teams to consider autonomous tech-enabled patient safety solutions – those that operate with little or no human supervision – as well. Learn more about the problem and get access to resources to help you during ideation here.
$5,000 and $2,500
