Big Ideas: A Data-Driven Innovation Competition

The Institute for Informatics (I2) and the Healthcare Innovation Lab (the Lab) are pleased to announce the second Big Ideas competition for the Washington University School of Medicine and BJC HealthCare communities.

The Big Ideas competition provides an opportunity for collaborative clinical, operational, and research teams to develop innovations in informatics and healthcare delivery. The intent of the program is to support innovative projects that are clinically relevant, rigorously evaluated, and operationally sustainable.

Investigators may request up to $50,000.

The competition encourages applications from all individuals affiliated with BJC HealthCare and/or the Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM), with a preference for projects that involve collaboration across the two organizations. The Lab and I2 administrations are happy to help facilitate connections between BJC and WUSM partners, if needed.

Letters of intent to apply are due no later than December 13, 2019.
