Humana Launches ‘Innovation Challenge’ to Make Digital Health Records More Useful

MHW learned today that Humana Inc. is sponsoring an Innovation Challenge in California to make digital health records – specifically in the Medicare space – more useful to patients, physicians, caregivers and others who need to see complex data in a more human-centered way.
