Prize Design Summary

XPRIZE Frontline Health is an incentivized competition that empowers patients, frontline health workers and health leaders with data and AI-enabled digital health tools and services to improve access to and enhance efficient coordination and delivery of quality health care.

Teams will design data exchange and analytics solutions that harmonize granular, patient-centric data that can be exchanged between different point-of-care systems for the purposes of addressing priority health needs of the country and challenges of coordinating and delivering primary care at the frontline.

During 40 months of active competition, teams will advance through three competition rounds – Written Proposal Submission, Data Exchange Prototype Development and Testing, and Deployment and Primary and Secondary Demonstrations of Data Use - to deliver data exchange and analytics systems that will be assessed by various user satisfaction evaluations and undergo rigorous testing with real data on a primary health focus and within a catchment area of a country partner. The competition will be based on teams participating in a human-centered design summit with relevant country stakeholders to understand their needs and map challenges and workflows.

In order to win, teams need to…

  • Develop and test a health data exchange solution within a clinical setting, using AI technologies to demonstrate the value of data to multiple end users.
  • Based on a human-centered design process, teams will outline their solution, its fit for existing workflows and its potential to leverage the harmonized data through the use of AI technologies in a detailed written proposal.
  • Teams will build a health data exchange prototype and test it for workflow fit, performance and other technical requirements.
  • End users including patients, frontline health workers and health leadership, will assess the value of different solutions.
