ONC’s Investing in Innovation Challenges

Over the next 2 years,  the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) will be issuing nearly $2m in prize money for numerous challenges all designed to inspire innovation in health information technology. There are two upcoming challenges:

  • Reporting Device Adverse Events Challenge – ONC is asking multi-disciplinary teams to develop an application that facilitates the reporting of adverse events related to medical devices, whether implanted or used in the hospital, clinic, or home. This challenge has $40,000 in total prizes
  • Ensuring Safe Transitions from Hospital to Home Challenge – ONC is challenging software developers to improve care transitions and build upon these tools by generating an intuitive and easy-to-use application to empower patients and caregivers that fits into existing ways that providers communicate. This challenge also has $40,000 in total prizes.
