The Ohio opioid technology challenge seeks to combat the fast reason behind national drug-use epidemic afflicting many states which were announced with 12 prizes to projects that aim to find tech-based solutions to this persistent problem.
The challenge has begun earlier this year with associations from govt. John Kasich who invited participants from the business and innovation communities within the state to help create tech solutions that should fit into any of the four categories:
1. Diagnose;
2. Prevent;
3. Connect;
4. Protect.
Going by the press release from the state, the challenge has now awarded $200,000 each to 12 projects with services enabling the expansion of their ideas further.
With more than 50 proposals being submitted as part of the challenge, is now wrapping up the second of three phases.
 The first phase involves the process of collecting ideas from a wide range of stakeholders, like researchers, caregivers, service providers and others;
• The second phase involves the creation of tech solutions.
Later, the state’s press released notes stating that there were some proposals outside Ohio as well, but unfortunately they all are involved in partnering with in-state entities.
The final phase will soon begin and run throughout July 2019. During which, the third phase will see participants utilizing the funds reserved by the state to refine their ideas into scalable products. Interesting as it seems, we still need to wait till July 2019 for the final outcomes.
