CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Three mobile health monitoring technology companies were recognized recently as the top three solutions submitted to the American Medical Association’s Health Care Interoperability and Innovation Challenge sponsored by Google Cloud.
The three winning solutions selected from among the semi-finalists share $50,000 in Google Cloud credits to accelerate their solutions. They are:
- HealthSteps (first place, $25,000): a mobile health platform that focuses on the delivery of information between patient and provider to improve health outcomes through a digital care plan and real-time data.
- I-deal Health (second place,$15,000): a digital platform that empowers patients to visualize their personal risk for multiple diseases, choose goals to reduce their risk, and close the loop between patients and clinicians to achieve success. Through individualized treatment derived from EHR data, patients can work to focus their efforts through the help of the I-deal Health mobile application.
- FUTUREASSURE(third place, $10,000): A system that uses validated data to implement mobile technology into standard clinical workflow. It collects clinical and research data to assess a patient’s risk for surgery and can predict surgical outcomes previously not compared.
The three winning ideas were selected by judges to best demonstrate uses of patient-generated health data to have maximum impact on improving physician workflow, improving clinical outcomes and reducing cost in the health care system.
“The AMA issued the challenge to inspire the creation of novel mobile technology that demonstrates innovative uses of health data to support the long term wellness of patients,” said Dr. Michael Hodgkins, chief medical information officer of the AMA, in a statement. “The top solutions chosen in the AMA Challenge have the potential to be transformational innovations that effectively share meaningful medical data between patients and physicians and create a healthier nation.”
