Strengthening the Open mHealth project's architecture to drive adoption, catalyze health innovators, and build a sustainable organization

This project will accelerate growth and adoption of the Open mHealth (OMH) architecture by catalyzing its community of health innovators and building a sustainable organizational model. OMH, a nonprofit startup, is building an open-source protocol to make it easier to integrate disparate sources of health data and to mix, match, and reuse modular components to scale health solutions for all. This grant will include a matching component to encourage additional funders to participate and enhance OMH's sustainable organizational model. The award will include a $1.48 million base grant and up to an additional $575,000 to match (on a 1-to-1 basis) donations by other funders. Deliverables for Phase 3 of catalyzing OMH will include: (1) up to 100 applications and organizations that are OMH compliant; (2) development of an application that demonstrates how OMH works and why data integration is important; (3) tutorial materials on how to quickly get up to speed on implementing OMH architecture; (4) local meetings run by developers around the country: and (5) two annual OMH conferences.
