Health Wonk Review at Boston Health News and an Interesting Challenge

Tinker Ready is hosting this week's edition of Health Wonk Review at Boston Health News: Data, medicine, insurance reform and a round up of health policy blogs. It's a tasty smorgasbord from some of the best minds in the health policy blogosphere.

Tinker opens her post talking about the Knight News Challenge. To learn more about this, be sure to click the last entry in the roundup. It's Tinker Ready's idea submitted to the Challenge: HealthDecider: Using data to stay healthy and get well - we think it's an excellent concept and if you do too, sign up and give her a vote.

The Knight News Challenge is pretty interesting with a stated goal to "...accelerate media innovation by funding breakthrough ideas in news and information. Winners receive a share of $5 million in funding - and support from Knight's network of influential peers and advisors to help advance their ideas. Innovators from all industries and countries are invited to participate. Winners include leading Internet entrepreneurs, emerging media innovators and legacy newsrooms."

Check out past winners and see submissions for this year's Challenge, to date.

If you have an idea, you'll need to act fast - there are only 5 days left to get an entry in to his year's Challenge before the feedback phase begins.
