The ImagineNation Outcomes Challenge is an initiative from Canada Health Infoway to accelerate the use of technology by regulated health professionals in Canada. For a quick introduction to the challenge watch this video.
Users of the Mindzplay software may qualify to participate in the “e-Scheduling” category. To qualify, a team must have at least one team member who is a:
· regulated health professional licensed to practice in Canada; or
· representative of a health care organization that delivers services of regulated health professionals in Canada (e.g. dental clinic); or
· representative of a health care organization that provides publicly funded health services in Canada (e.g. home care agency).
Participants in the Challenge are rewarded for making a plan to increase use of their e-scheduling solution, and also for the volume and momentum (growth) of the use of their solution. Teams can be rewarded up to $110,000 as part of the Challenge, and also qualify for other benefits just for participating.
Participation is easy: teams demonstrate their e-scheduling solution in a brief video, then report the number of uses and number of users of their solution each month, from as early as January 2012 until March 2013. For full details, visit the website.
The sooner a team qualifies, the sooner they can begin adding to their total, so the organization recommends qualifying as soon as possible for the best chance of winning.
