November is American Diabetes Month, a perfect time to recognize an innovation for the nearly 25% of Veterans receiving VA care with diabetes. VACI is funding a field test of SweetSpot’s technology allowing diabetic Veterans to monitor and report their blood glucose levels to VA clinicians on an ongoing basis, which helps the care team identify emerging issues before they become acute. SweetSpot also identifies blood glucose patterns to correct behaviors with diet, medicine, exercise, etc.

Submit your challenges now!

VAinnovation.ideascale.com

VA employees are invited to identify the most important challenges that, if solved, will meaningfully increase quality, improve access, increase Veteran satisfaction, and lower costs of meeting the needs of Veterans, their dependents, and caregivers.

This year’s competition takes on a new format:

· Phase 1 – September 9 through September 16 – Challenge Identification: During this phase, all VA employees may submit, comment, and vote on the most important challenges we can solve in service to Veterans and taxpayers.

· Phase 2 – Launching late 2013 – Solution Generation: VA employees are invited to propose the best ways to solve those top challenges selected from Phase 1.

Use your VA login credentials to join the 2013 Employee Innovation Competition now. We want your ideas!
