The Heritage Open mHealth challenge will encourage teams to create mobile applications using the Open mHealth architecture.  The use of an open architecture overcomes inherent limitations created by dissimilar mobile health applications that cannot communicate with one another.  Applications created in conformance with an open architecture will increase the diversity and utility of personalized health information available to improve chronic disease management, both through better patient self-monitoring and better clinical decision making.  

"I'm very proud to sponsor this prize with UCLA and Open mHealth," said Dr. Richard Merkin , President and CEO of Heritage. "Currently, there are thousands of mobile apps and web applications for a variety of medical conditions but none that work together cohesively," continued Dr. Merkin. "For patients with multiple chronic conditions it is extremely difficult for them to monitor and track those conditions on separate applications. Allowing the tracking of their conditions in real time will lead to better health outcomes and lower cost of care."

"We have worked for years to promote an open architecture in mobile health," said Prof. Deborah Estrin , Co-Founder of Open mHealth. "The inability of diverse mobile applications to be integrated with one another to serve particular patient needs has greatly hampered the progress in patient-centered disease management.  This challenge should go a long way toward advancing the cause of an open architect
