Passport Sponsors Two Challenges!

Passport Health Plan has proposed two different challenges for participants at the SOAR Health Hackathon to tackle. 

Within the substance abuse track they are asking participants: How can we improve pain management among the Medicaid population – both before and after people receive prescriptions for medicine that could potentially lead to inappropriate use and/or abuse?  The team to pitch the best solution to this challenge will win a $1000 cash prize from Passport Health Plan. 

Within the obesity/diabetes track they are asking participants: How can we improve the A1c screening rates for diabetes (and other diabetes-related screening rates) among the Medicaid population?  The team to pitch the best solution to this challenge will win a $1000 cash prize from Passport Health Plan. 

Do you have a good idea for how to address these challenges?  If so, register for the Hackathon! If you've already registered, it's never too early to start brainstorming innovative solutions!
