Amazon Web Services launches a four-week virtual program designed to accelerate the growth of healthcare companies.
The AWS Healthcare Accelerator is designed to help healthcare companies meet some of the biggest challenges in the industry. Its goal is four: to cultivate and promote home solutions that: improve the patient experience, improve the physician experience, improve health outcomes, and reduce the cost of care.
It is open to operations based in the United States or having existing operations in the United States and having an established product market that is tailored to existing customers and revenue. The program is designed to accelerate growth in the cloud, focusing on solutions such as remote patient monitoring, voice technology, analytics, virtual care, and patient involvement.
In collaboration with KidxX, AWS will select ten healthcare companies to receive advice, resources and other opportunities.
This includes AWS promotional credit; possible poor concept opportunities with public sector healthcare clients; AWS training; mentoring of experts in health and technical matters; business development and market orientation; and investment guidance. In addition, there is also the opportunity to collaborate with AWS healthcare customers and partners looking for innovative healthcare solutions.
Applications are already open and proposals must be received by July 23, 2021. AWS said individual applications will be judged by several factors, including the innovative nature of the project, the overall value of the solution for the healthcare industry and the capacity of the opportunity team identified.
While AWS Healthcare Accelerator has an American approach, innovation in closer healthcare technology is also a key focus for the UK. The last quarter of 2020, Deloitte launched Health Tech Catalyst, a health technology innovation center in Birmingham. While in March of this year, Peppy Health was crowned as the winner of Digital Health Rewired Pitchfest 2021, an initiative to help emerging companies scale their ideas.
