The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) announced the final winners of the Move Health Data Forward Challenge.

The multi-phase challenge focused on the development of applications allowing individuals to share their personal health information safely and securely with their health care providers, family members or other caregivers. The final winners will receive $50,000 each.

The final winners are:

Foxhall Wythe LLC: Docket is a secure system for users to seamlessly store and share their health data with trusted care providers. The solution promotes Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act compliance and uses industry-standard FHIR messages. The authorization for sharing of data is accomplished through a Quick Response (QR) code scan and an OAuth 2.0 handshake.

Live and Leave Well, LLC: Live and Leave Well provides both a consumer mediated exchange of end of life plans and creates a transportable package of data about that person’s end of life plans. The application uses a combination of open application program interfaces, direct integration as well as OAuth 2.0 to securely move sensitive data among multiple user types.

“The final winners in the Move Health Data Forward challenge show us that electronic health information can truly be owned by patients and their family members,” Don Rucker, M.D., national coordinator for health information technology, said in a statement. “We expect these winning apps will open up new ways for Americans to own and manage their health information safely and securely.”

Phase 1 of the Move Health Data Forward Challenge required applicants to submit their plans describing how they would develop solutions to help with the flow of health information. The ten Phase 1 winners were awarded $5,000 each and moved on to Phase 2, which required participants to demonstrate a viable solution to achieve the challenge’s goals. The five Phase 2 winners were each awarded $20,000 and moved on to Phase 3 where they implemented their solutions through a mobile or web-based application.
