There is another X PRIZE for digital health applications; specifically for the development of sensors. The Nokia Sensing X PRIZE. As the competition overview notes:
“Traditional laboratory tests, hospital equipment, and a limited number of machines in a doctor’s office are the primary means to get information about a person’s health today. In many countries around the world these mechanisms are in short supply; even in developed countries it is difficult to come by access to healthcare that is timely, convenient, cost effective and reliable.
Yet capturing body metrics and interpreting these readings into valuable insights about detection, assessment, treatment and management of health conditions is very possible. Sensing can be used as a faster, cheaper, easier means to get information that has been limited up to now by the capabilities of conventional testing”
