Starting in early April, Kaggle will be hosting the world’s biggest-ever data mining competition – the$3m Heritage Health Prize. The Heritage Provider Network (HPN) is a network of affiliated medical groups and physicians that is dedicated to helping solve a critical issue facing the United States: how to improve the quality of healthcare while at the same time decreasing the cost of providing that care.

Kaggle is immensely proud to be providing the platform for this competition, which we hope will result in those most in need getting faster and cheaper access to healthcare.

If you haven’t yet tried entering a Kaggle competition, we strongly suggest you start getting involved, to start sharpening your skills and building your network.

There are four interesting and varied competitions on the site right now and by getting involved, you’ll learn a lot about how to compete effectively and may make some great relationships with other competitors, who you could team up with in the $3m prize.
