Can you create AI enabled tools to support healthcare consumer decision making?

We encourage the development of AI enabled technology that helps support individuals as they make important health decisions in their day to day lives.  Submissions can include, but are not limited to, technologies that help consumers navigate the various options they have in terms of care providers, or technologies that support individuals as they manage their own health and well-being over time.   

This includes but is not limited to virtual assistants, chatbots, voice-enabled devices, digital platforms, and applications to support consumers as they navigate everyday healthcare decisions. Examples of these types of decisions include: choosing the right care provider,  finding a local pharmacy with affordable prices, scheduling appointments, etc.
