The American Medical Association (AMA) said Wednesday it has taken its partnership with MATTER, a health care technology incubator in Chicago, to a new level in an effort to increase support for health- and medicine-related start-up companies.
The partnership was solidified by the launch of AMA's Interaction Studio at MATTER.
“Physicians and entrepreneurs are both passionate about transforming health care, and by working in tandem they can advance innovations that make the health system work better for everyone,” said AMA CEO and Executive Vice President James Madara said. “The capabilities of the AMA Interaction Studio allow entrepreneurs to connect, in person and virtually, with a broad range of physicians to get a deeper understanding of the key challenges in patient care that can be resolved with advances in new technology.”
The goal of the AMA Interaction Studio is to bring together entrepreneurs and AMA's expanding network of physicians.
“It is incredibly valuable for health care entrepreneurs to have access to physicians as they build their products, technologies and businesses," MATTER CEO Steven Collens said. "The AMA Interaction Studio enables entrepreneurs and clinicians to collaborate with each other in a real-world, technology enabled environment to accelerate the development of meaningful new solutions to improve health and health care.”
MATTER is a community of entrepreneurs, innovators and industry leaders working together to harness technology to improve health and health care.
