All students are invited to compete in OSU’s Health Data Shootout, a competition hosted by The Center for Health Systems Innovation’s Center for Predictive Medicine and the Center for Sovereign Nations.
Competitors will work in teams of up to five people to find the most innovative solutions to health care challenges facing American Indians. Student teams can register to access CHSI’s Cerner Health Facts database, which is one of the largest HIPAA-compliant relational databases in existence. Student teams will use an American Indian dataset containing nearly electronic medical records stripped of patient names, tribal affiliation and other identifying information.
The Health Data Shootout competition is open to all OSU undergraduate and graduate students of any major and from any campus. A nationally recognized panel of health data experts will judge the competition. Teams will be awarded $1,000 for first place, $500 for second place and $250 for third place. Registration runs through Sept. 23. The submission deadline is Oct. 2. Winners will be honored at an awards ceremony Oct. 13 in the Student Union at OSU-Stillwater.
