CHIME National Patient ID Prize Challenge
We are inviting innovators from around the world to participate in the CHIME National Patient ID Challenge for the creation and adoption of a solution which will ensure 100 percent accuracy in identifying patients in the United States.
Accurate identification can greatly reduce the risk of preventable medical errors and significantly increase the quality of care. The goal of the challenge is to develop a national patient identification solution that will be private, accurate and safe.
The incentive challenge has two phases:
- Concept Blitz Round: Design concept for solving the national patient identification challenge
- Final Innovation Round: Build prototypes that demonstrate the functionality and performance of the design concept
The top three submissions in the concept blitz round shall receive a prize of $30,000 USD each. The winner of the final innovation round shall receive a prize of $1,000,000 USD. The final date to submit an entry for the concept blitz round is April 8, 2016. The final date to register for the final innovation round is July 12, 2016. No entry fee is required.
