Create a solution
to predict health outcomes.
*There was overwhelming interest in the CMS Artificial Intelligence Health Outcomes Challenge and more than 300 launch stage applications were submitted! To allow enough time for a thorough and fair review of all applications, the judging period for the launch stage is being extended and announcement of Stage 1 participants will be made in October 2019.
This challenge is an opportunity for innovators to demonstrate how AI tools, such as deep learning and neural networks, can be used to predict unplanned hospital and skilled nursing facility (SNF) admissions and adverse events. The challenge will prioritize explainable AI solutions, which can work with front-line clinicians and patients to improve data feedback and drive quality improvements.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS’) Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (Innovation Center) is launching the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Health Outcomes Challenge, in collaboration with the American Academy of Family Physicians and the Laura and John Arnold Foundation. The CMS AI Health Outcomes Challenge will distribute up to $1.65 million to encourage further progress in AI for health and health care and to accelerate development of real-world applications for this technology.
Participants will analyze large health care data sets and develop proposals, AI driven models, and frameworks that accurately predict unplanned hospital and SNF admissions and adverse events.
