CHHSA/CDPH Announce Let’s Get Healthy California ‘Innovation Challenge’
Accepting submissions through Sept. 30

The California Health and Human Services Agency (CHHSA) and the California Department of Public Health have launched the Let’s Get Healthy California “Innovation Challenge,” which  invites community and health advocates, health care providers, community-based organizations and health care practitioners to share innovations that promote health equity and further the Triple Aim — better health, better care, and lower costs. The agencies are specifically looking for  innovations that promote health equity, showcase data use, engage community partners, help drive measurable health outcomes, are rooted in strong research or theoretical evidence, demonstrate credibility and influence in their targeted communities and provide scalable approaches to be used in different community settings. Submissions will be accepted through Sept. 30.

The Innovation Challenge furthers the goal set by Gov. Brown in 2012 when he issued an Executive Order to create the Let’s Get Healthy California Taskforce and make California the healthiest state in the nation by 2022. More information is available on the CHHSA website and in attached pamphlet.
