Over 25 million Americans are living with diabetes, and the need for innovative ideas to help advance diabetes care has never been so critical. With only one week remaining before submissions close on April 7, the 2013 Data Design Diabetes Innovation Challenge - Prove It! is your chance to harness data to develop solutions with the potential to make a broad impact on the diabetes community.

Open innovation is a powerful tool for provoking game-changing solutions, and Prove It! combines the power of the healthcare ecosystem with open data to support the development of new ideas and approaches to help patients. Finalists will benefit from a truly incredible opportunity to connect with expert mentors, resources and exposure, evolving their concepts into meaningful business solutions that may impact millions of lives. Have an idea that’s been brewing? It’s time to act!

Now in its third installment, the stakes are even higher this year - each of the finalist teams will be invited to present their solutions during a live Demo Day at Health Datapalooza IV in Washington, DC on June 3, 2013. Thousands of healthcare influencers, data practitioners and innovators will gather at this premier healthcare event, watching as the finalists compete to win $100,0000.

There’s no better time to grow a seed of an idea into a solution with the potential to drive lasting improvements in care for people living with diabetes. Submit your concept before April 7, 2013, and follow the challenge on Twitter and Facebook for news and updates.
