Mayo Clinic launched its artificial intelligence startup program this week with four early-stage health tech companies.
The 20-week program, called Mayo Clinic Platform_Accelerate, aims to help AI-based startups get market-ready by offering access to Mayo Clinic experts in regulatory, clinical, technology and business domains with a focus on AI model validation and clinical readiness.
The program also features additional expert assistance from Google and electronic health records giant Epic.
“Health tech startups are critical contributors to the cycle of innovation,” said John Halamka, M.D., president of Mayo Clinic Platform, in a statement. “We are excited to collaborate with these innovators to solve some of the most complex problems in medicine today.”
