The Health Care Innovation Challenge, which was launched in November by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, approaches its second major milestone later this month. The applications are due January 27, 2012 and the winners are scheduled to be announced by March 30.

…one of the most interesting and exciting attempts to move the health care ball forward that we have seen in decades.”
— Dr. Ramon Barquin, President of consulting firm Barquin International
