One of the boons of open innovation is that it can be used not only to boost business bottom lines but also for the common good, such as initiatives to eradicate disease and improve health and well being of patients. For example, GE’s Healthymagination Innovation Challenge.
The Janssen Connected Care Challenge is also concerned about our health as it’s on the lookout for “technology-enabled, scalable solutions to improve care for patients as they are discharged from the hospital.”
Recently, the crowdsourcing competition announced that three finalists will receive $50,000 to further develop their ideas.
