Amazon Web Services has had relationships with thousands of health care startups. On Oct. 28, however, the culmination of AWS’ Healthcare Accelerator launch will give 10 recently selected startups an unprecedented experience.

The companies will receive what AWS officials say will be “white-glove” treatment, including access to a wealth of AWS technologies and a huge support ecosystem that includes health care customers and collaborators.

Providers like Providence, Houston Methodist, Kaiser and Geisinger and tech and retail companies like GE Healthcare, Epic, Cerner, CVS Health and others will provide collaboration and support to the startups over an extended period.

The 10 startups will take part in a virtual demo day showcase on Oct. 28 accessible by request. The startups’ solutions address everything from a digital front-door solution that optimizes patient journeys to a logistics platform that reduces barriers to accessing care.

Among the companies selected for the showcase are:

  • AIVA: The company offers a voice-powered care assistant for patient rooms and senior living communities.
  • b.well: The firm’s all-in-one system for consumer engagement, holistic health management and cost containment aggregates data to paint a picture of health for each consumer and to illustrate population health.
  • Ejenta: Using artificial intelligence exclusively licensed from NASA, this company’s remote monitoring and remote care delivery links devices and electronic health records to predict health and connect care teams.

Amazon’s aim is to connect growth-stage digital health solutions with AWS’ health care provider organizations to accelerate care in the cloud and for potential pilots and collaborations between providers and companies.

The accelerator’s goal is to cultivate and promote innovative startup solutions that achieve the Quadruple Aim of improved patient experience, improved clinician experience, better health outcomes and a lower cost of care.
