Stakeholders in New York are looking to award up to $300,000 each to 12 early- and growth-stage technology companies to develop products to support the state’s new Medicaid medical home program for improved coordination of patient care, called “Health Homes.”

The New York City Investment Fund, New York eHealth Collaborative and New York State Department of Health have launched the New York Digital Health Accelerator program.

The program is funded with contributions totaling $4.2 million from Aetna, Milestone Venture Partners, New Leaf Venture Partners, New York City Investment Fund, Quaker Partners, Safeguard Scientifics and UnitedHealth Group. The Empire State Development Corp., Health Research Inc. and New York eHealth Collaborative will provide additional funds or services to operate the program.

Funded companies will receive mentoring from senior executives at 18 participating provider organizations that will test the products. The companies also will have “priority access” to the technology platform of the Statewide Health Information Network of New York.

An application and more information, including the list of participating providers, are available at digitalhealthaccelerator.com. An informational session is scheduled on May 10 in New York City and applications are due by June 1.
