HHS announces Phase 1 winners of the Move Health Data Forward Challenge
The Department of Health and Humans Services’ Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) today announced the Phase 1 winners of the Move Health Data Forward Challenge. Winners were selected based on their proposals for using application programming interfaces (API) to enable consumers to share their personal health information safely and securely with their health care providers, family members or other caregivers.
“As health information technology becomes more accessible, consumers are playing an even greater role in how and when their health information is exchanged or shared,” said Dr. Vindell Washington, national coordinator for health information technology. “The Move Health Data Forward Challenge will help consumers unleash their health data and put it to work.”
