Purpose

This opportunity is a prize competition to support innovative technological solutions to help prenatal care providers remotely monitor the health and well-being of pregnant women, as well as place health data into the hands of pregnant women themselves as a tool to monitor their own health and make informed decisions about care.

    Selected applicants will be invited to prototype their proposed intervention and test its effectiveness.
