  • Title: Rheumatoid Arthritis Data Challenge
  • Announcement date: March 8, 2016
  • Award date: May 10, 2016
  • Summary:
The Rheumatoid Arthritis Data Challenge is a code-a-thon, described as:
"Striking at the heart of a key issue in health outcomes research, participants will be provided access to a secured development environment in a staged competition over three weeks to create the best competitive algorithms to gauge clinical response in Rheumatoid Arthritis management."
The challenge is hosted by Health Datapalooza in May 2016. It's sponsored by Optum, Academy Health, and the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). This challenge uses non-governmental de-identified administrative claims data and electronic record clinical (EHR) data with the goal of establishing algorithms to predict clinical response to rheumatoid arthritis management. Applications are open to any team of health data enthusiasts, but only 15 of these will be selected for participation. (Register at: https://hdpalooza.wufoo.com/forms/rheumatoid-arthritis-data-challenge-reg-form/). Winners announced at the Health Datapalooza on May 10, 2016, with $40,000 in prizes to be awarded.
