Web App Developer Challenge: Reducing Cancer Among Women of Color $85,000 prize

This challenge is a multidisciplinary call to innovators and developers to create a mobile device-optimized tool that engages and empowers women to improve the prevention and treatment of breast, cervical, uterine, and ovarian cancer in underserved and minority communities and interfaces with provider electronic health records (EHRs). The tool will achieve the following:
  • Provide general information regarding preventive and screening services for breast and gynecologic cancers—including, but not limited to, benefits, timing, scheduling, and location.
  • Allow for the interface with patient health records or provider-sponsored patient portals to provide specific reminders and trigger electronic health record-based clinical decision support regarding the timing of preventive services.
  • Support the storage, viewing, and exchange of complex patient care plans. In particular, the tool will help strengthen communication among provider care teams, possibly spread out across large geographic locations, to afford optimal remote follow-up (e.g., be able to send patient information to electronic health records via Direct).
  • Support patient engagement and care giver support to help patients and/or their caregivers keep track of complex care plans, such as connections to community health workers, promotores de salud, or patient navigators.
  • Be optimized for use on mobile devices.
