The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology has named two winners of a competition to develop applications that use public data and existing technology to help patients and clinicians prevent, detect, diagnosis or treat cancer.

The winning applications, which each garnered a $20,000 prize, are:

* Ask Dory! from Applied Informatics LLC, combining data from the Web site with a decision tree algorithm to help patients find clinical trials; and

* My Cancer Genome from Vanderbilt University Medical Center, which uses data from the National Cancer Institute to give therapeutic options based on an individual patient’s tumor gene mutations.
