Funding and Mentoring Health IT Innovation
The New York Digital Health Accelerator is an annual program run by the Partnership Fund and the New York eHealth Collaborative (an affiliate of NYS Department of Health) for growth-stage digital health companies developing cutting edge IT solutions in care coordination, patient engagement, behavioral health tech, population health and telemedicine.
The program works to catalyze the growth of jobs and economic activity in NY’s health IT Sector, leveraging the size of the city’s health care delivery system and the $1+B investment by NY State in health IT infrastructure.
Through a competitive process, the senior leadership from major healthcare providers across New York State selects the participants. The program’s greatest differentiator is that companies selected to participate gain access and receive mentorship from high-level executives from New York’s leading healthcare providers. Each participating company is matched with multiple provider mentors and will have the opportunity to execute pilots to demonstrate the value of its technology solution. Participants are also matched with mentors from our investor syndicate who provide guidance on product positioning, financials and fundraising.
