Heart Health Mobile app has won the Department of Health and Human Services challenge

Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation’s Heart Health Mobile app has won the Department of Health and Human Services challenge, part of its Million Hearts initiative, intended to leverage clinical and community prevention strategies to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes by 2017. The app is designed to help consumers assess their risk of heart attack or stroke and direct them to health screening locations in their community.

As the winner, Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation will receive $100,000 to support the app's development and future versions.

The Heart Health iPhone app is available to download from the Apple iTunes store. A Web-based responsive design version that works on other devices is expected to be released in March 2013, and the app will soon be available in other languages.
