The Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE is a $10 million global competition to stimulate innovation and integration of precision diagnostic technologies, helping consumers make their own reliable health diagnoses anywhere, anytime.
Later this year the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE will announce its winners. The VITALITI Health Monitoring System has been named a top-7 finalist in the prestigious $10M award, and part of a growing movement to place valuable health metrics at the fingertips of the consumer.
More recently, Cloud DX has been selected as a WT Innovation World Cup Finalist. Cloud DX has also been awarded second place at the 2015 Interface Health Challenge and was named 2015 Ontario Startup of the Year for Innovation.
The dire need for improvements in personal health and healthcare in the U.S. has captured the attention of government, industry, and private citizens for years. But a viable solution has evaded the most technologically advanced, educated and prosperous nations on the globe. Integrated diagnostic technology–once available on a consumer mobile device that is easy to use–will allow individuals to incorporate health knowledge and decision-making into their daily lives.
Advances in fields such as artificial intelligence, wireless sensing, imaging diagnostics, lab-on-a-chip, and molecular biology will enable better choices in when, where, and how individuals receive care, thus making healthcare more convenient, affordable, and accessible. The winner will be the team with the technology that most accurately diagnoses a set of diseases independent of a healthcare professional or facility, and that provides the best consumer user experience with its device.
