The X PRIZE Foundation, Wellpoint, Inc. and the Wellpoint Foundation Unveil Initial Design for Revolutionary $10+ Million Healthcare X PRIZE
"President Obama has called for bold new ideas to revitalize our health care system. We are answering that call by developing an innovative incentive prize that optimizes the health of all Americans and significantly increases the value from every health dollar," said Dr. Diamandis. "This is not the situation today and we need to change it. Ultimately, you get what you incentivize. If we can refocus our health care system on helping individuals optimize health, and reward providers who improve outcomes, the implications over the next decade will be profound."
