The CMS Artificial Intelligence (AI) Health Outcomes Challenge, in collaboration with the American Academy of Family Physicians and the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, is looking for innovative technology and strategies to predict health outcomes, such as unplanned hospital and skilled nursing facility admissions, and adverse events. AI tools have the potential to improve the quality of care and reduce administrative costs.

Applications are due by June 18 and will be followed by two elimination stages, with Stage 1 to begin on July 19. The five Stage Two finalists will receive prizes of $80,000. The grand prize winner, to be announced by April 20, 2020, will receive a prize of $1 million and the runner-up will receive $250,000.
