The Open Ideas competition for Bosnia and Herzegovina commenced in September of this year. A total of 28 ideas for the development of mobile applications to aid the improvement of the healthcare system in B&H were submitted. After the first round of public online voting, expert jury assessment, a two-day hackaton and the second round of online voting, on Monday, November 24, the community has chosen the Practical Register of Medicines as the winner from the Open Ideas competition in B&H.


Throughout the six-day voting process, more than 4,300 votes were collected through the website. Six ideas have been developing their online communities via social networks throughout the competition, which has had impact on the final result.

Final results were calculated using the following formula – 30% of the result was generated through Facebook likes and the number off Twitter followers, while 70% of the result was comprised of the votes submitted via website.
