Indiana’s Governor Eric Holcomb has set an ambitious goal to greatly reduce the State’s infant mortality rate and achieve the lowest rate among Midwestern states by 2024. To support these efforts, the HIMSS Indiana Chapter in coordination with Indiana FSSA, the Indiana Department of Health, Indiana Management Performance Hub, the Regenstrief Institute, KSM Consulting, Parkview Health, and BioCrossroads will conduct a virtual data challenge.

By convening students, researchers, policymakers, health care professionals, and entrepreneurs from across the state, the challenge will propel the exploration and analysis of Indiana’s data to deliver powerful insights and innovative solutions that result in better health outcomes for Hoosier moms and babies.

Participating teams will be given access to data sets on the Indiana Data Hub and will be tasked with creating solutions on one of these specific topics: minority mental health, state policy, or county level program to combat health disparities.

  • $1,000 for the first place team in each topic category (3)
  • If first place team members are students registered as part of the student category, they will also receive a 1-year HIMSS Student membership sponsored by the HIMSS Indiana Chapter

Each team participant needs to register separately. The team leader will register first and create a Team. Then as each team member registers, they can join that team when registering. Only those participating alone should register as an individual. Those who do not register will not receive any competition information or participant awards.

Teams are limited to no more than 5 members. Participants are only allowed to participate with one team. Each team must register as either a student or professional team. A student team is one where the majority of the team members (>50%) are full-time students.
