The Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE

A $10 million competition to bring healthcare to the palm of your hand.

Imagine a portable, wireless device in the palm of your hand that monitors and diagnoses your health conditions. That’s the technology envisioned by this competition, and it will allow unprecedented access to personal health metrics.

In virtually every industry, end consumer needs drive advances and improvements. Except in healthcare. Very few methods exist for consumers to receive direct medical care without seeing a healthcare professional at a clinic or hospital, creating an access bottleneck. Despite substantial investment to improve the status quo, even average levels of service, efficiency, affordability, accessibility, and satisfaction remain out of reach for many whom the system was intended to help. A prize is thus sorely needed. The end result: Radical innovation in healthcare that will give individuals far greater choices in when, where, and how they receive care.

The Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE will stimulate innovation and integration of precision diagnostic technologies, making reliable health diagnoses available directly to "health consumers". To learn more, visit qualcommtricorderxprize.org.
