UCLA Health 'TechQuity' Accelerator announces 1st cohort of innovators

The inaugural class of innovators at UCLA Health's health equity technology accelerator, 'TechQuity', have been announced

The class of companies all share a common goal of driving innovation in the health equity space, using technology across life sciences, to pharmaceuticals to champion equity, according to a July 20 press release. The four-month program will provide the founders with advice, mentoring and product development support. Some of the companies include a COVID-19 mobile testing unit for vulnerable populations and an AI-based diagnostics for remote patient monitoring.

"​​This cohort represents the type of patient-centered innovation we seek to support: early-stage companies driven by a mission to develop inclusive technologies and accelerate health equity within diverse populations," said Jennifer McCaney, PhD, executive director of UCLA Biodesign. "We're fortunate to be able to tap into the LA region's rapidly growing tech ecosystem and its diverse talents, assets and infrastructure."
