Preliminary Competition Timeline
Above image is the proposed timeline for the competition (click here for larger image; also see detailed description below), starting with a proposal submission followed by prototype building in round one and solution deployment and user testing in the final round each with its own judging phase.
We would like your feedback on the overall timeline of the prize.
Please leave any thoughts or ideas you may have in the comments below!
Here is more detail of what each section composes of:
Overall, we expect teams to develop and deploy 3-6 solutions for real-life demonstration in a catchment area and the chosen health focus.
Round 1 (6 Months): Proposal Submission
Teams carry out human centered design with country health leadership, frontline health workers (FHW), & key stakeholders. Then they submit written proposals for how to aggregate & harmonize data AND how they will demonstrate both the primary and secondary benefits.
Round 2 (12 Months): Build & Test Interoperability System
Develop an interoperability prototype and demonstrate its quality and functionality through testing with the existing point-of-care systems and against predetermined criteria such as accuracy, speed, and other performance metrics.
Round 3 (12 Months): Deployment and Demonstration of Primary and Secondary Benefits
Deploy solution in one catchment area. Gather user feedback on the solution to demonstrate the primary benefits to the frontline health workers and the secondary benefits for population level insights for evaluation by health leadership.
