Harmony Health today announced it has been selected to participate in the AWS Healthcare Accelerator for Health Equity, a technical, business, and mentorship program for startups seeking to use AWS to increase access to health services, reduce disparities by addressing social determinants of health, and/or use data to promote equitable and inclusive systems of care.
This opportunity will support Harmony Health’s efforts to enhance its micro-engagement
with additional artificial intelligence and analytics capabilities to serve vulnerable, hard-to-reach, and diverse communities. Harmony Health’s platform enables people closest to the hard-to-reach communities (trusted messengers such as promotoras, community health workers, volunteers, and providers) to create conversational outreach in their own language and context using SMS in a novel way. The trusted messengers are able to engage and educate community members and patients to help with scheduling care, obtain access to needed services (food, housing) and gather insights into additional needs.
The four-week AWS Healthcare Accelerator curriculum provides hands-on AWS Cloud and technical training, mentorship, coaching, and business support. As one of 10 companies chosen for this opportunity, Harmony Health will receive up to $25,000 in AWS computing credits, AWS training and support, mentorship, and additional business development resources including opportunities to speak with healthcare-savvy venture investors. The support from AWS will advance Harmony Health’s micro-engagement platform that helps community-based organizations connect with and serve at-risk communities and individuals.
