NIDA accepting proposals of mobile apps designed to help patients take their meds

Have an idea for a mobile device application that would increase patients’ compliance in taking prescribed medications? Now could be your chance to turn that app concept into a reality.

The National Institute of Drug Abuse is currently seeking proposals for just such a tool. According to an institute announcement:

NIDA seeks to develop and test a prototype mobile/tablet technology-based application to provide a low-cost, highly personalized, interactive patient-centric medication adherence tool that improves upon currently available mobile technology-based medication adherence applications.

The submission deadline is Nov. 13 at 5 p.m. Eastern. Full detail are here (.pdf)
