For each phase of the Challenge, a panel of Federal Judges evaluated the applications and selected winning submissions, in collaboration with MCHB.
P4 Challenge Evaluation Criteria
Understanding of Population Served and Its Need
- Does the contestant demonstrate an understanding of the population served, key barriers to access to well-child visits and/or immunizations, and need for innovative approaches to address the stated problem?
- How well does the contestant leverage appropriate partnerships to maximize impact in its community?
- Is the intervention feasible given the prize money and time frame?
- How well does the contestant demonstrate connections to primary care?
- How well does the approach incorporate patient/family-centered design (e.g., addressing barriers to access and utilization for preventive services for children, parents’ hesitancy regarding vaccination, and well-child visits during the pandemic)?
- Regarding the contestant’s data collection and analysis approach:
- How well has the contestant demonstrated a clear plan to capture baseline data and to show improvement in the targeted outcome(s)?
- How feasible is the approach?
- Does the planned approach protect patient information appropriately?
- How innovative is the design and the content of the intervention, and how responsive is the intervention to the community’s need and the available data?
- How promising is the intervention with respect to potential for buy-in from the population of focus?
- How likely is the proposed solution to increase well-visits and/or immunizations in a participating or collaborating primary care setting?
- How likely is the plan to measure impact accurately?
- How likely is the proposed solution to be sustained?
Impact and Approach
- Based on the data, how effective of an intervention did the contestant introduce (a recorded increase in well-visits and/or immunizations)?
- How well did the contestant demonstrate their ability to adapt and strengthen the intervention based on data and feedback along the way?
- How effectively did the contestant mobilize partnerships to increase impact of the intervention?
- How strong is the potential for the intervention to be sustained beyond the duration of the P4 Challenge?
- How strong is the potential for scaling in other, similar communities?
- How well does the contestant set itself apart from the Phase 2 competition in delivery of its innovation?
- How promising is the intervention in terms of potential for buy-in from the population of focus?
