The HITLAB World Cup is an opportunity for innovators in design, medicine, and technology from around the world to develop impactful solutions to fulfill unmet needs in healthcare.

Solutions may take many forms, from patient-oriented mobile health (mHealth) applications to novel diagnostic tests, and new approaches to care delivery and beyond.

Judges will analyze and score these diverse entries based on a common set of weighted criteria focused on the solution’s impact on healthcare, the sustainability of the business model, the strengths of the management team, and the engagement of the participants during the competition.
