Thanks for registering for Innovate Health Tech NYC! We're thrilled that you're interested in helping solve urgent health care problems by creating new, commercially viable technologies.

Potential participants: read on and get started on your submission today! Solutions are due May 2, 2013.

Quick-start guide

  1. Get inspired: explore healthcare priority areas that can benefit from innovative tech solutions.
  2. Brainstorm: What health care problem(s) would you like to address? What commercially viable technology can you create to help solve it? Go through the list of Required Submission Questions to help you think through it.

    Eligible technologies may include, but are not limited to, healthcare analytics tools, clinical workflow management tools, mobile health applications, and wireless health monitoring devices.

  3. Choose a submission type: a) software, or b) hardware. You're welcome to enter as many solutions as you'd like (provided that they're not identical or substantially similar), but you must choose one submission type per submission.

  4. For software solutions, decide on a platform (or more!), then start coding. Software solutions can run on any mobile device or platform, desktop operating system, or web browser.

  5. For hardware solutions, design your technology, then start prototyping.

  6. Enter your submission. Start filling out your submission early so that you don't feel rushed on deadline day. Even if you don't have all the details yet, you can choose the "Save as Draft" option and come back to it later.
