This week, the Texas Medical Center’s accelerator, TMCx, unveiled its second class of 13 digital health startups. Startups selected in the five month program starting from January to June 2016 will focus on digital health followed by a third class focused on medical devices running from July through December 2016.
“We believe the potential synergy of bringing 13 companies together, each of them focused on different aspects of digital health care innovation, will lead to unpredictable associations, collaborations and greater acceleration for each company,” said Erik M. Halvorsen, Ph.D., director of the TMC Innovation Institute. “TMCx companies have access to the largest collection of top physicians, scientists and business expertise on one campus, which serves over 7.2 million patients annually. The new program structure will make the best use of these important resources.”
