1 min read

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has launched a three-phase competition to develop new applications designed to streamline the collection of standardized patient-reported outcome data for use in research and clinical settings.

AHRQ said in a Challenge.gov notice the initial phase of the Step Up App Challenge calls for participants to provide proposals that describe how they plan to develop their proposed apps.

Applications are due Sept. 24, according to the notice.

The agency will evaluate the proposals based on participant capabilities, impact, feasibility and originality before picking the winners that will advance to the app development phase.

AHRQ will award a grand prize of as much as $87,000 to the winning app that will be assessed based on technical merit, functionality and usability and deployability.

The developer will work with MedStar Health to conduct a pilot test of the winning app over a seven-month period next year across nine clinical practice settings in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C.
