FDA to Provide Input for Competing Teams in the $10 Million Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE
Sep 4 13
XPRIZE announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will offer regulatory input to teams competing for the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE, a 3.5-year global competition that will award $10 million to teams that develop a consumer-friendly device capable of diagnosing and interpreting a set of 15 health conditions and capturing key vital signs. In addition to assisting teams in preparing for potential FDA review post-competition, the FDA will benefit by learning about new direct-to-consumer diagnostic technology sooner than when it arrives for official review. Specifically, working with the teams participating in the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE provides the FDA with another platform for testing a unique online communication method for interactions with the stakeholders. The FDA will provide regulatory input to the XPRIZE teams during the course of the competition via a 3-tiered online help desk. The first tier will provide general input on frequently asked questions on FDA regulations, the second will be more specific to the devices under development as part of the competition, and the third, even more specific to the XPRIZE finalists, will include a method for confidential communications between the agency and the teams.
