We are pleased to announce that we have been selected to participate in the AWS Healthcare Accelerator: Global Cohort for Workforce to advance solutions for addressing urgent challenges facing the healthcare workforce.
Healthcare workforce shortages are at crisis levels, driven by burnout, shrinking budgets, and the aftermath of a worldwide pandemic. As a result, patients may go untreated or experience delays in care, and healthcare workers need support now more than ever.
This AWS Healthcare Accelerator is a four-week technical, business, and mentorship program for startups seeking to use AWS to improve healthcare workforce training, retention, and deployment. This opportunity will support our efforts to digitally transform the way healthcare is delivered for improved patient outcomes.
The AWS Healthcare Accelerator curriculum provides opportunities such as hands-on AWS Cloud and technical training, business mentorship from healthcare leaders, and exposure to AWS customers and members of the AWS Partner Network. It also includes participation in a Demo Day, where Visionable will be showcased.
Visionable aims to connect fragmented health systems by providing a clinical collaboration platform across the care continuum—from initial consultation, to hospital treatment and at-home care. Its secure and reliable platform facilitates availability of medical record, diagnostic, and imaging data for triage, provides secure virtual meeting tools for clinical staff, and enables remote decision-making, including for stroke specialists, via patented real-time, multi-streaming technology. By leveraging AWS Cloud services, we are able to increase privacy, security, and availability—enabling clinicians to confidently provide care for their patients anywhere, from any device.
“We are very excited to be a part of the AWS Healthcare Accelerator as we continue to work toward enabling access to healthcare services and improving patient outcomes,” said Miguel Lopes, Chief Product Officer at Visionable. “Building Visionable’s digital healthcare platform on AWS gives us an excellent opportunity to improve how clinicians and patients connect and interact without geographical or technological constraints.”
“Solutions to help clinicians as well as other office and technical staff in healthcare are needed urgently and globally,” said Dr. Rowland Illing, Chief Medical Officer and Director of International Public Sector Health at AWS. “We know that advancing cloud- and technology-enabled approaches can alleviate some of the burden, and we’re proud to be convening standout startups and healthcare leaders in this first-ever global Accelerator to do that.”
