Announcing the 2017 Aging in Place $50K Challenge

Rock Health is thrilled to announce our collaboration with AARP Foundation to launch the 2017 Aging in Place $50K Challenge. We’re honored to join forces with an organization who shares our mission to make healthcare massively better—and with the number of Americans aged 50 and older projected to grow to 132M by 2030, it has never been more critical to focus on effective solutions for the older adult population. Competitors have the chance to earn a $50,000 cash prize and work with AARP Foundation to improve the lives of vulnerable seniors by addressing issues that help to reduce unnecessary healthcare services, costs, and hospital readmission rates—especially as described in the CMS 30-day hospital readmission measure.

Have a solution that reduces unnecessary healthcare services and costs for older Americans? Tell us about it. Eligible competitors have a good handle on product-market-fit and an ARR (annual recurring revenue) of at least $100K.

Submissions will be accepted until October 2nd, 2017. The top five finalists will pitch to a panel of judges at the Rock Health office in San Francisco the week of December 11th, 2017. Once selected, the winner will receive a cash prize of $50K to continue improving the health outcomes and quality of life for low-income aging Americans.

If you’re a digital health entrepreneur working toward a reality where older Americans are able to live healthy lives in their own homes and communities, we can’t wait to hear from you!

The deadline for submissions has been extended to Friday, October 6 at 11:59pm PDT. Apply here.
