Healthcare in America is in a period of rapid change, and primary care physicians are on the front lines. Innovations in Primary Care are essential to meet the challenge of providing more people with consistent, quality care for less money without burning out our clinicians. These innovations are already happening in hospitals, academic medical centers and clinics all across the country. The Primary Care Challenge seeks to publicize and promote the best and brightest of these innovative ideas so that clinicians everywhere can see what works and implement those ideas that are most appropriate for their particular environment.
Our sponsors have generously provided eleven prizes to be awarded to the most innovative submissions to the contest. Awards include all-expenses-paid trips to Boston to pitch their proposal to a panel of judges during our September 16, 2014 live event ‘Medicine on the Front Lines: Empowering the Next Generation of Primary Care Providers’ at Harvard Medical School. For a list of all eleven awards, click here.
The submissions deadline is September 3. You can submit your idea at: https://medstro.com/primarycarechallenge.
Five finalists from the online competition will pitch their ideas to an expert panel, and winners will be chosen. Following that, an expert panel will discuss the challenges of primary care and how the ideas submitted during the challenge could be game changers.

Directions to the Cannon Room from the Quad (orange line on map below):
When you are facing the Quad, walk up the RIGHT set of stairs and along the walkway until you come to glass doors on your RIGHT.
Go through the two sets of glass doors and make an immediate LEFT (a security guard/desk will be on your right).
You want to go LEFT and walk through a green set of doors. Keep following the hallway and the Cannon Room will be on your LEFT in a short time. If you have come to a black and white checkered walkway, you have gone too far.
