EHR Innovations for Improving Hypertension!

ONC Challenge for Improving Hypertension

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health
Information Technology (ONC), in conjunction with the Million Hearts Initiative, has launched its newest prize challenge, EHR Innovations for Improving Hypertension!

In Phase 1, the challenge seeks to identify the practices that have used clinical decision support to implement the most successful evidence-based blood pressure treatment protocols. ONC will then reward organizations that can spread these tools for use by the most providers in Phase 2.

Visit the Challenge website to learn more information and register for the Q&A webinar taking place at 3:00 pm ET on Tuesday, August 5.

Phase 1 submissions are due October 6, 2014! Up to four winners will each receive $5,000; the single winner of Phase 2 will be awarded $30,000.
