Deadline: 18 May.
The third annual call for applications for the New York Digital Health Accelerator
is now open. NYDHA, a joint program run by the New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC)
and the Partnership Fund for New York City,
is a five-month program for ten early- and growth-stage digital health companies in New York (or willing to locate in NY state). What makes the program distinctive in their view, in addition to being in NY, is that it offers unique exposure to top-level healthcare executives and venture capitalists while accelerating product development and access to capital. Certainly its 20+ partners come from the top level of NY healthcare companies and providers, such as Aetna, North Shore-LIJ Health System, Winthrop University Hospital, Rochester General, VNSNY, Mount Sinai and many others. 15 companies in the prior two years of the program have done extremely well, raising a total of nearly $41 million in additional capital post-program, securing 33 pilots and creating more than 120 jobs. Two were acquired: Avado and Remedy Systems. New for 2015: to encourage collaborative innovation, two companies can jointly apply to present a combined solution. NYDHA website
