New Home Testing Models in a Post-COVID Environment

Last year, teams explored the impact COVID-19 had on how and where medicine is being practiced.  Changes to patient interaction models, challenges with keeping our healthcare workers safe, and rapid deployment of remote testing have opened up areas of medicine that are expected to impact

how all medicine will be practiced in the future.

This year's theme builds off last year and is as follows:

This competition will focus on the rapid growth of at-home lab testing and issues relating to effectiveness, efficiency, and inequities to access that have been exposed.  Competition participants will propose a compelling business model where routine lab tests are performed at or close to home and include digital tools to connect providers to patients, methods to send test results directly to a patient's health ecosystem, and an evaluation of the impact the model has on under-served populations

The Competition will be open for all teams virtually on Nov. 6th, 2021

*Participants will have an impact on Danaher discussions about the future of remote testing post-COVID

*The virtual platform will allow more teams to participate, more time to prepare, and without the travel expenses.

*Top 3 Teams win $14,000 in cash prizes
