Heritage Open mHealth Challenge

The Heritage Provider Network (HPN), in collaboration with the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and Open mHealth is launching an open challenge that seeks submissions demonstrating innovative uses of the Open mHealth architecture, and the power of integrating mobile applications and data for more effective management of clinical conditions. The goal of the Open mHealth architecture is to allow patients and clinicians to combine existing and emerging applications and devices to create integrated, personalized health solutions that enable improved disease management and better health outcomes.

Teams must include at least one member with clinical expertise and one participating user to test and provide feedback on the proposed solution. Therefore, teams can be a minimum of two people and a maximum of ten. Submissions must be mobile applications using the Open mHealth architecture and must be hosted on a server selected by the team. Submissions will be judged based on creativity and originality, usefulness, impact, generality, openness, design & usability, accessibility & user testing.

The winning team will receive $100,000. Teams must register their members by March 15, 2013 and complete their submissions by May 1, 2013. For more information, see the link below:
