Each application was reviewed by a selection committee that included participating provider leadership, venture capital participants, clinicians, and technology experts.
The committee selected eight companies to participate in the Accelerator Program. Criteria for selection included: product innovation in focus areas, management’s track record, and company stage.
What Selected Companies Get
