A marketplace for health technologies that offers matchmaking, technical assistance, and competitive awards to defray the cost of pilot projects
Now entering its third year, Pilot Health Tech NYC seeks to partner early-stage health and healthcare technology companies ('innovators') with key NYC healthcare service organizations and stakeholders ('hosts'), including hospitals, physician clinics, payors, pharma companies, nursing associations, large employers, large retailers, disease foundations, and community health centers. A marketplace for health technologies, Pilot Health Tech NYC helps to connect these players through matchmaking, technical assistance, and $1 million in competitive awards to defray the cost of pilot projects.
Pilot Health Tech NYC was developed by NYCEDC in partnership with Health 2.0. The program is designed to leverage NYC's high concentration of healthcare organizations and its robust tech sector to drive business growth and job creation while equipping caregivers with the tools they need to improve patient outcomes.
The 2015 program will consist of two independent components: the matchmaking program and the funding program.
The matchmaking program will selectively identify innovative companies to directly address needs expressed by participating hospitals, clinics, payors and other potential customers. Two matchmaking sessions will be held each year to connect innovators and stakeholders.
The funding program will seek applications from innovator and host pairs who have partnered with each other to carry out a pilot project. A panel of expert judges will review the applications and evaluate the submissions based on publicly established criteria. Selected pilot projects will receive funding from NYCEDC, totaling $1,000,000 over three years.
The deadline for applications to participate in the first matchmaking session is October 8th, with the first matchmaking session to take place in New York City on October 28th. Apply using the Pilot Partner online form.
The second matchmaking sessions will follow in May 2016. If you have any questions about the matchmaking process, please direct your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
