The Cedars-Sinai Accelerator, a program that helps entrepreneurs bring their innovative technology products to market, has brought in nine more health tech startups as part of its fourth class.
From July to September 2018, as part of the fourth class of the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator, these nine teams—which were chosen out of hundreds of candidates—and their innovative products “represent the best and brightest from our global community of health innovators,” officials said in a recent post announcing the companies.
This program’s leaders believe that this class is poised to improve healthcare delivery, support clinicians and enhance the patient experience. They noted, “While each company is unquestionably impressive on its own merits, when taken as a group, this class illustrates the complex nature of healthcare and highlights specific themes that are currently highly relevant to the industry.”
Specifically, as concerns rise over the role of technology in physician burnout, companies in this year’s class, like Sopris and KelaHealth, are building products which support physicians in their practice and reduce the technological burden, the blog post read.
What’s more, other startups such as Nicolette, CardioCube, and SureConsent, are developing solutions which help health systems provide more personalized and interactive support to patients and caregivers, particularly at challenging times such as caring for a child in the NICU, monitoring chronic heart disease, or preparing for surgery.
The three-month program, based in Los Angeles, provides companies with $120,000 in funding, mentorship from more than 300 clinicians and executives, access to Cedars-Sinai, and exposure to a network of over 10,000 entrepreneurs and investors. The Cedars-Sinai Accelerator has been around since 2015.
The newest class in full is: ALIS Health, CardioCube, Digital Medical Tech, KelaHealth, MedPilot, Nicolette, Relatable, Sopris and SureConsent. Learn more about them here.
