Answering health care questions to support decision-making

Following the successful first Data Impact Challenge, the ImagineNation team wanted another set of important health and health care questions to be answered to inform health care decision-making.

First, all Canadians were invited to submit, and then vote on, the health care questions that they wanted to see in the Challenge.

Once the slate of questions were announced, authorized users of health data sets were invited to answer them for the potential to earn part of the more than $95,000 in awards.
