New York Digital Health Accelerator is a nine-month program geared toward digital health companies. The four areas of focus include care coordination, analytics, message alerts and patient engagement. One of the perks of NYDHA, according to the website, is that companies “have priority access to the technology platform that is connecting electronic health records across New York State: the Statewide Health Information Network of New York (SHIN-NY).” A leadership program is included in the overall program, which allows the companies to interact with investors, entrepreneurs and healthcare leaders. This program also culminates in a demo day for potential investors.
