The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT has launched a new challenge to “help bridge technological gaps” by bringing together healthcare organizations and innovative companies through $300,000 in pilot funding awards.

“Members of the healthcare innovation community have great products that can improve the U.S. healthcare system and make life better for patients and care providers. However, effecting actual change is extremely difficult due to the high barriers to entry in the health IT space. Once an innovative new product has been developed, it needs to be tested in real-life care settings,” according to ONC, which is calling on health innovators to pair with host sites such as hospitals, clinics, laboratories, or pharmacies to develop pilot proposals.
