AWS Healthcare Accelerator announces 12 start-ups for inaugural programme

AWS Healthcare Accelerator has selected 12 participants for the first programme in the UK.

The companies were selected from 117 applications from 13 countries by a panel from Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Public, a government-focused technology company that has a network of healthcare start-ups and an international presence.

Announced last October 2021, the accelerator is a four-week programme that cultivates and promotes innovative start-ups that aim to improve patient experience, improve clinician experience, achieve better health outcomes, and lower cost of care.

The 12 participants are:

The activity data collected by Infinity can also be used to build predictive models that inform strategic resourcing and planning decisions.

Abtrace supports healthcare systems to transform the way long-term health conditions are detected, monitored and treated. The platform acts as data-driven layer sitting on top of electronic health records prompting proactive interventions and earlier diagnosis.

Over four weeks, the 12 start-ups will receive AWS promotional credits, training, mentoring from healthcare domain and technical subject matter experts, business development, go-to-market guidance, and investment guidance. The companies will also have potential proof-of-concept opportunities with public sector healthcare customers.

The programme brings in healthcare industry leaders to collaborate with the start-ups on topics ranging from business models, regulatory pathways, clinical validation, and electronic health record integration. The programme also fosters collaboration opportunities with AWS customers and AWS Partner Network partners looking for new healthcare solutions.

The programme culminates in a virtual demo day on 25 April, which can be joined by clicking here.
