Leading Health Initiative of The Year Contest

Health Initiative Of The Year Contest
The ‘Leading Health Initiative Of The Year’ contest (see rules & regulations) is held by Reboot Forum and Yedioth Aharonot Group. It is aimed at “Re-Booting” initiatives that can encourage local innovation and entrepreneurship, and contribute to the healthcare system in Israel.
The contest identifies initiatives that can lead to significant change among patients, their families, or their healthcare providers and medical staffs, and thus contribute to the sustainability of the health system in Israel. Contest winners receive a “Reboot Accelerator Package” that includes a financial budget, introduction to influencers and decision-makers, professional advice, support, and broad professional and public exposure.

Our ‘Health Accelerator’
In order to bring about change today – and to influence tomorrow’s challenges, we must support the one resource that is most available to us: human capital within and outside the health system. Israeli ingenuity, creativity, and entrepreneurship are our greatest competitive advantages and must be encouraged. Our support is different from commercial accelerators because we do not claim back profits from successful initiatives. Unlike the start-up incubators, the model here is not oriented towards business outcomes for investors, but rather results that will be measured in improving public health, processes, service, patient experience, and more. The profit is of the health system as a whole.

Supporting initiatives today – Promising the healthcare of tomorrow
