The Aetna Foundation is calling on organizations to leverage
technology to make an impact on health outcomes in vulnerable
communities. The Foundation today announced the Healthier World
Innovation Challenge, a $4.5 million initiative designed to steer
digital health innovation to improve chronic health outcomes in
underserved communities.

Six Challenge winners will not only receive up to $750,000 each over
three consecutive years, but will also have support from the Aetna
Foundation and partner resources to implement their innovation. The
Challenge is part of a larger, three-year digital health commitment by
the Aetna Foundation to help address public health concerns. With the
addition of the Challenge, the Aetna Foundation’s commitment to
digital health will now total $5.7 million between 2014 and 2016.
