Arkansas Hospitals Back Healthcare Startup Accelerator Program

A group of Arkansas hospitals announced on Friday they are working together to expand a state-supported, startup accelerator program that connects early-stage companies with Arkansas healthcare providers to bring new “disruptive technologies” into the marketplace.

Arkansas Heart Hospital, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Washington Regional Medical Center, Arkansas Urology, Mercy, and CHI St. Vincent all announced they are collaborating to extend and expand HealthTech Arkansas, the next iteration of two previous accelerator programs, Health InnovatAR and HubX—LifeSciences.

According to the hospital backers, the 2019 cohort program will involve more partners and increased investment from the participating companies.    MORE
