Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute Matchmaking App Challenge
Submission Deadline: August 15, 2014
First Place $100,000
Second Place $35,000
Third Place $15,000
The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) was authorized in 2010 by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to help patients make better-informed health and health care decisions, and improve healthcare delivery and outcomes, by producing and promoting high-integrity, evidence-based information.
PCORI’s strategic goals are to increase the quality and quantity of useful information to support health decision-making; to speed the implementation of this information into healthcare practice, and to influence research funded by others to be more patient-centered. To accomplish this, we bring patients, caregivers and other stakeholders fully into the research process. This includes collaborating with researchers in critical activities such as formulating research questions, developing research materials, determining research protocols, and helping to review and disseminate study results.
However, as non-traditional participants in research, patients and stakeholders are not always equipped to find researchers with whom they can partner. In addition, researchers may be inexperienced at recruiting patients and stakeholders to contribute to research endeavors.
The PCORI Challenge Initiative- hosted in 2013 with Health 2.0- asked developers to design concepts and prototypes of a “matching” mechanism or system which connects patients, stakeholders and researchers interested in seeking funding for rigorous patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR). The winners for the PCORI Challenge Initiative were announced in June 2013.
PCORI staff identified the best features of the winning concepts and proposals. With this information, we determined the necessary elements of a matchmaking app that patients, stakeholders, and researchers can use to make connections with each other, and embark on collaborative, patient-centered outcomes research projects.
PCORI’s Matchmaking App Challenge offers an opportunity for developers to create a polished app, ready for publication in an app store. The app will be used by patients, stakeholders, and researchers who want to partner with each other and conduct PCOR. PCORI identifies the “patients” community as patients, caregivers, and patient or caregiver advocates. Stakeholders, as defined by our organization, include health systems, policymakers, training institutions, clinicians, purchasers, payers, and the medical device and pharmaceutical industry.
In responding to this challenge, entrants should see that proposed solutions address such issues as:
The technical feasibility, usability and scalability of the proposed app
The differences in the ways that patients, caregivers and researchers understand, describe and seek answers to the health or health care problems they face or the issues they seek to address
Maximizing “patient-centeredness,” as well as scientific rigor
The particular challenges of serving "hard-to-reach" audiences, including, but not limited to, ethnic and racial minorities, rural populations, the elderly, physically challenged and non-English speakers.
