The first cohort of Amazon Web Services (AWS) healthcare accelerator has been announced.

AWS has identified 12 startups, chosen from 115+ applicants, who are developing solutions in ai, patient and clinician connectivity, mental health support, and machine learning.

“These selected startups are backed by a diverse leadership – 50 per cent of the startups chosen identify as women-owned or minority-owned businesses,” AWS said.

The accelerator is a four-week programme to support startups in delivering improved experiences for patients and clinicians, enhancing health outcomes and lowering care costs.

The chosen startups include Dignio, which connect patients and healthcare professionals through a digital platform, and Sapien Health, the “world’s first digital clinic” for surgery and helping prepare patients’ mind and body for surgery through sustainable lifestyle changes.

Also involved is Dr Julian, a mental healthcare platform that aims to increase accessibility of mental healthcare provision through patients’ phones, tablets, or computer; and C the Signs, which uses AI to identify patients at risk of cancer at the most early and curable stages.

WYSA uses AI-guided listening blended with professional support to help users self-manage stress, while DDM Health, which is a multi-award-winning provider of digital therapeutics to improve patient health outcomes

Others include PEP Health, which uses AI to help patients share their thoughts in real time and democratise patients’ voice; and Remedy Rx, which is capturing around 95 per cent of the data that sits outside the healthcare system to create a direct and dynamic link between doctors and patients.

Birdie, meanwhile, offers a technology platform for home care providers, while Infinity Health, is a SaaS task management solution for healthcare professionals to plan and co-ordinate care, monitor performance, and make real-time decisions to improve safety and efficiency.
