ONC has launched a challenge for developers, designers and health data privacy experts to create an online model privacy notice generator for health IT products that will encourage transparency and help consumers make informed choices.
The first place winner of the challenge will receive $20,000. The second and third place winners will receive $10,000 and $5,000, respectively.
The general requirements for the challenge are:
- The submission cannot use HHS or ONC logos.
- The submission must function as expressed in its description and must contain accurate and complete information.
- The submission must be free of malware, and is subject to ONC testing.
While the design of the notices is up to the submitter, the notice cannot be a static document, such as a PDF. However, the notice can be interactive and include visuals.
ONC is accepting submissions until April 10, 2017. Winners will be announced mid-2017.
