CMS AI Health Outcomes Challenge

Winner of the largest
healthcare AI
challenge ever

In April 2021, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced as the winner of the Artificial Intelligence Health Outcomes Challenge—the largest healthcare-focused AI challenge in history.

The $1.6 million contest launched in March 2019 with more than 300 entrants—including IBM, Merck, Accenture, Deloitte, and Geisinger. Entrants competed to create explainable AI solutions that clinicians could trust to predict health outcomes, target scarce resources, and keep their patients healthy. ClosedLoop took a unique approach to winning the Challenge by building data science infrastructure dedicated to healthcare that enables ML models to be rapidly built, validated, and iterated on.
