What is the MITRE Telemedicine Innovation Challenge?
The MITRE Telemedicine Innovation Challenge is an opportunity for innovators to demonstrate how telehealth technologies and modalities (which could include video conferencing and data transmission capabilities as well as medical devices and measurement apps with data transmission and/or storage capabilities) can be applied to conduct a standardized history and physical examination. Participants are asked to share their knowledge and determine the feasibility or practicality of telehealth for certification exams.
What organizations may participate in the MITRE Telemedicine Innovation Challenge?
U.S.-based and international healthcare vendors, telehealth vendors, healthcare systems, innovation companies, research, and academic institutions are welcome to apply. All organizations must demonstrate experience complying with US healthcare regulations and standards.
Are we allowed to demonstrate technologies that are not yet in common usage?
Yes, however proposals will be evaluated on their ability to be implementable within 2 years.
How will participants be notified if they have been selected to participate in Stage 2?
All applicants will be notified via email on the status of their proposal by February 6th, 2023.
What will happen with the submitted proposals?
All proposals shall remain with the Federal Government and will not be returned.
What happens with proposals that include proprietary information?
All information received in response to this challenge that is marked as proprietary will be handled accordingly.
Will final presentations in Stage 2 be in person or virtual?
Final presentations will be held virtually via MS Teams or Zoom. Details will be provided to selected finalist when notified on participation in Stage 2.
Is there prize or incentive money for Stage 2 participants?
No, there is no prize money or incentive money.
Will a list of participants in Stage 1 or Stage 2 be published?
Yes. We will list Stage 1 and Stage 2 participants on the website with the organizations permission.
Can we submit a component product which can be integrated into a full solution?
Yes. We encourage innovators who provide a solution for a single portion of the history and physical exam to submit a proposal. For example a telemedicine solution for a complete eye examination or detailed mental health assessment would be acceptable.
What are the cybersecurity requirements?
The proposed technology solution(s) must meet (at a minimum) FISMA, FedRamp and other relevant cybersecurity and privacy requirements. Further details on these including the process for Authority to Proceed (ATO) will be addressed at a later phase.
