The four finalists will share the $150,000 Cox prize now, with an additional $50,000 awarded to the eventual winner,  named a year from now, after they have pursued their dissemination plans. Each finalist will become the subject of an HBS case study.

Applications for the Challenge were evaluated on the three Challenge criteria of impact, evidence, and dissemination.  Each was given an overall score to create a list of 21 semi-finalists. These 21 innovations then went through additional rounds of judging to identify 7 ‘shortlisted’ candidates and, ultimately, 4 strong finalists.  A committee of 24 judges--a mix of clinicians, health care professionals, and academics--specializing in health care and innovation, reviewed the applications.
