ViTAL x CASE x MAPS Present:


     Innovation Challenge

March 27, 2021

9 AM - 2 PM


About us
​Created by and for undergraduates who are interested in the intersection of healthcare, tech, and business, Husky Health Innovation Challenge (HHIC) was founded in 2018 as the first healthcare focused case competition for undergraduates in the Greater Boston Area. Despite Boston’s rich healthcare ecosystem, healthcare-related case competitions have been overwhelmingly limited to graduate students. Undergraduates bring a fresh perspective to this critical space.
This event is open to ALL undergraduate students in the Boston area, with cash prizes. In teams of three to four, participants will propose innovative digital health solutions to a salient issue in healthcare identified as the topic of our case. The top five proposals will be selected to present their solutions to a panel of judges on Pitch Day this March 27th.

Yes. Thanks to our sponsors, this event is completely free to participants (and we’re so excited for all that we have in store)!
While attending our workshops is not required to compete, we highly encourage students to come. Our workshops and speaker series have been carefully designed to prepare students from all backgrounds to address this year’s case.
This year’s theme is digital health and public health, specifically in the realm of nutrition in older people. 
​Teams should be groups of 3-4 undergraduate students. If you don't have a team in mind, no worries -- we will play "matchmaker" and create teams with interdisciplinary backgrounds to tackle the case.
​Come show off your talent and passion in healthcare, business, and technology for a chance to win cash prizes, swag, and exciting networking opportunities with corporate sponsors from around the Boston area!
If you are interested in sponsoring us in our mission, we would greatly appreciate your support! Read more about the different sponsorship packages here.
