Not-for-profit health care system Aurora Health Care has announced a strategic investment in StartUp Health, a global entrepreneurship development company for Healthcare Transformers to help accelerate the review and adoption of innovations aimed at transforming the delivery of care.
The strategic investment will provide Aurora early access to proposed innovations and will be able to work side-by-side with entrepreneurs to implement solutions in Aurora’s provider and patient communities. The new collaboration will also provide Aurora with first-look opportunities to invest in, pilot and implement innovations from StartUp Health companies around the globe.
“This is a meaningful collaboration with Aurora that we believe will not only transform the pace of how innovation makes its way to patients and doctors, but we hope will serve as a roadmap for other leaders throughout the industry,” said Unity Stoakes, co-founder and president of StartUp Health. “Virtually every aspect of healthcare is being re-imagined and there’s no better way to speed up the cycles of innovation than to collaborate to provide entrepreneurs and innovators with ongoing support, expertise and resources to grow their business. Aurora is the perfect entity to do this with.”
Aurora Health Care will immediately begin reviewing innovations proposed through the StartUp Health platform for possible adoption. Health and wellness technology startups from around the world may apply to StartUp Health at startuphealth.com/apply. Applications are reviewed every 30 days.
