The goal of the More Disruption Please Innovation Challenge was to attract entrepreneurs to healthcare. As athenahealth puts it, Healthcare needs less distraction and more disruption. This year's More Disruption Please Innovation Challenge attracted over 70 teams in a challenge that asked them to step up to the challenge of building cloud-based solutions that solve hospitals' biggest pain points.
This year, in that field of entrepreneurs and visionaries, Bloodbuy was awarded with runner-up honors. For more info, head over to the More Disruption Please Innovation Challenge gallery to congratulate the winners and check out all of the submissions. Here's a review of the finalists:
