Cedars-Sinai accelerator accepts 10 health tech startups to 3rd class

Los Angeles-based Cedars-Sinai Medical Center launched the third class of its health tech program, called Cedars-Sinai Accelerator Powered by Techstars, Sept. 19.

The 10 startups — focused on artificial intelligence, mHealth and voice assistants, among other technologies — were selected from hundreds of applicants, according to Cedars-Sinai officials. Each startup will go through a three-month program, refining their product with mentoring from Cedars-Sinai physicians and executives.

"The innovations these companies bring to the accelerator have the potential to dramatically improve and streamline the delivery of healthcare," said Darren Dworkin, CIO of Cedars-Sinai. "By working with world-class physicians, they will advance their technologies and push their companies to the next level."

Cedars-Sinai Accelerator Powered by Techstars also provides each startup with an initial investment of $120,000 and connects participants with investors, mentors, alumni and corporate partners through Techstars, an entrepreneur network.
