Intelligent Decisions (ID), Inc., a recognized leader in federal IT solutions, won $20,000 as the second place winner for the company’s new health and wellness focused mobile app in the prestigious national “Blue Button Mash Up Challenge.”
ID was awarded second place among a total of 17 entrants, and the event was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information.
The goal of the challenge was to catalyze public and private organizations to make it easier for individuals to access their personal health information online, and to encourage consumers to use that information to improve their health.
“Intelligent Decisions is thrilled that our mobility practice has received this nationally recognized award, helping to validate our approach of providing intuitive apps to end users with a focus on simplicity, meaning, and insight – rather than technology and complexity.” said ID President and CEO Harry Martin. “This is the beginning of great things to come.”
The innovative app centralizes and transforms patients’ raw data to provide an organized, simple picture of their health, and is part of ID’s larger mobility practice designed to deliver intuitive, consumer-centered, and mission-focused mobile solutions.
Developers, designers, patients, providers, health care organizations, and anyone else interested in health care were invited to take part in the nationwide Blue Button Mash Up Challenge. San Diego-based Humetrix was the first place winner of the competition and received $45,000.
ID’s next steps for its health and wellness focused app include the integration of additional providers to support more patients, and launching the app on the Apple App Store in early 2013.
