The New York Digital Health Innovation Lab, previously the NY Digital Health Accelerator, was an annual program run by the Partnership Fund for New York City and the New York eHealth Collaborative. The Lab ran five accelerator programs between 2012 and 2017 for growth-stage digital health companies developing cutting edge IT solutions for major healthcare provider and payor organizations. Beginning in 2018, as our provider and payer partners looked for more developed solutions, the Lab focused on working with them to support the growth and success of the Lab’s graduates.
