Prizes for Developers
Health 2.0 sponsored prizes for Forum presenters. To celebrate the best applications and solutions for the use of data, Health 2.0 awarded two prizes:
PatientsLikeMe - Clinical Trials received Best of the Plenary, for the most innovative application or presentation shown during the morning plenary session, and
RiseHealth received Best of the Demos and Expo, for the most innovative application shown in either the afternoon Apps Demonstration Sessions (concurrent breakout sessions) or the afternoon Data and Apps Expo (table presentations in the exhibit area).
All applications or presentations were judged on the following criteria:
- use of government data,
- real world impact, and
- design of the application or solution.
All presenting organizations were eligible, but each presenting organization was only eligible to win one prize.
The prizes for both categories include $1,000 plus one free pass to the Health 2.0 Conference in San Francisco, California on September 25-27, 2011. Health 2.0 managed the judging process and tabulation, and winners were announced during the closing session of the Forum.
