Boehringer Ingelheim and Ashoka Changemakers Launch Competition to Find Business Models that Transform Health Systems
Date:1/24/2013

WASHINGTON and INGELHEIM, Germany, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Boehringer Ingelheim and Ashoka Changemakers are launching Transforming Health Systems: Gamechanging Business Models, an online competition to discover innovative business models that are solving critical problems in health systems around the world.

"Traditional healthcare systems in mature markets are not designed to encourage enough collaboration between key players, such as care providers, insurance companies, and government organizations," said Jean Scheftsik de  Szolnok, Vice-President Southern Europe for Boehringer Ingelheim and Making More Health Steering Committee Chair. "Often, the systems' misaligned incentives fail to produce real value for patients and society. Innovative business models are urgently needed to solve this issue."

Transforming Health Systems also seeks business models that confront problems in emerging markets where governments, businesses, and non-profits often lack the resources or commitment to serve communities in need.

Winners will receive awards totaling US $85,000 plus support from Boehringer Ingelheim to help advance their business models. They will be matched with Boehringer Ingelheim's local country offices, and will be able to explore the potential for partnerships or further on-going support. All individuals, organizations, or partnerships are eligible to enter from now until April 10, 2013 at changemakers.com/healthbiz.

Transforming Health Systems was built on key insights gained from the first Making More Health competition launched by Boehringer Ingelheim and Ashoka Changemakers.

"The previous Making More Health competition added tremendously to Ashoka's network of social entrepreneurs who are working to solve the critical problems plaguing the world's
