UnitedHealth care seeks to promote healthier lifestyles and/or new approaches for managing widespread chronic conditions by taking advantage of two exciting dynamics in today’s marketplace – innovative consumer technologies and consumer-centric health solutions. Accordingly, they are offering $60,000 for prototypes of novel combinations or modifications (“mods”) of existing, off-the-shelf consumer technology (including computer software and smartphone applications) that could be used to improve peoples’ health and quality of life. Applications require experimental proof of concept data, but UnitedHealthcare may make a partial award of $20,000 for a purely theoretical contribution. Proposals are due April 8, 2013.
