Open mHealth: Reference implementation and Community Building Phase I

Investigator: Ida Sim, MD, PhD
Sponsor: Tides Center

Location(s): United States


In January 2013, Open mHealth partnered with the Heritage Provider Network (HPN) and the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) to launch the ‘Open mHealth Heritage Challenge‘, an open challenge created to inspire the development of mobile health applications using an open architecture.

Teams were required to submit a demo of their application, along with video footage of the app in action. To ensure that applications would be developed with the end user in mind, each team entering the challenge had to include at least one member with clinical expertise and at least one participating user serving as a patient or a patient surrogate. Teams were also encouraged to include development, design, and data analysis experts.
