All public health and healthcare startups encouraged to apply to the AWS Healthcare Accelerator
Although focused on health equity, the 2022 AWS Healthcare Accelerator was open to all public health solutions. We recognize that public health data systems require modernization to increase their ability to respond to future public health threats, expand interoperability between systems, and improve state health care data systems.
