Artificial Intelligence (AI) Health Outcomes Challenge

It's Time for a Disruption in Healthcare -- And CMS Wants to Help Lead It


Welcome to the homepage for the CMS Innovation Center Artificial Intelligence (AI) Health Outcomes Challenge! We are excited about the anticipated launch of the Challenge in 2019.


Leaders of the technology revolution—including tech companies, academic institutions, scientists, clinicians, and patients—are leveraging cutting-edge technology to redefine healthcare delivery. We want to join them in this work. The goal is to help the healthcare system deliver the right care, at the right time, in the right place, and by the right people. It’s not enough to build on the technology that currently exists. We need to ask bold questions, like how artificial intelligence (AI) can transform and disrupt how we think about healthcare delivery.

With innovation central to its mission, CMS wants to be at the forefront of these efforts. We’re interested in exploring how to harness AI to predict health outcomes that are important to patients and clinicians, and to enhance care delivery. We are brainstorming how we can incorporate AI in the implementation of both our current and new payment and service delivery models.

Looking Forward

How can AI help transform healthcare delivery and improve patient health outcomes? That is where you come in. We encourage broad participation from all sectors—not just healthcare. The winning submission for the Challenge could come from anyone!
