Our friends at Cedars-Sinai Accelerator unveiled its latest class, its second for those counting, for the three-month accelerator program.   The digital health accelerator focuses on companies transforming healthcare by improving patient outcomes, reducing costs, and improving healthcare delivery. A total of 8 companies were vetted and selected to receive $120K in investment and mentorship from the physicians at Cedars-Sinai, researchers, and executives for the program whose past alumni include ZendyHealth, inscope, and Home Hero. “We will help companies accomplish in three months what will otherwise take them two years,” remarked Darren Dworkin, chief information officer at Cedars-Sinai. “We believe this new group of innovative thinkers has what it takes to break through the healthcare industry, and our experienced mentors will help shape and push these companies to the next level.”





Dreamit Health, the nation’s 2nd most active digital health investor and a top-10 ranked accelerator program is officially accepting applications for their Spring 2017 cohort through February 10th. Apply here.
