The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion and Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT are challenging inventors, developers and health professionals to co-design an application that will be used to help solve one or more of our Nation’s high-priority health problems.

Award: $15,000

Inventors, developers and public health experts are expected to co-design an application that makes the health indicators customizable and easy to use.
