The Fast Track to Scale Accelerator is accepting applications from startups with the ability to both redefine the health care system and impact whole health, a vision of the health care system that continuously supports and improves our overall health rather than only intervening when we are sick.
The FTTS Accelerator is also seeking solutions that address long-standing social injustice, racial inequality and health disparities in America and deliver support and relief to all affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Specifically, the 2021 Program will focus on solutions that address:
“We are here to accelerate solutions that reinvent health care and deliver exponential impact not in 10 years, but now.”
"I think these solutions are definitely something we should try, figure out how they will work, and put into play."
“Thanks to Anthem and the Fast Track to Scale Accelerator, all of the stakeholders were at the table to work with us, which was just an unbelievable opportunity.”
“We are excited to be part of designing and delivering programs that push the envelope on what it means to predict and proactively provide value to meet and manage the entirety of our consumers' needs."
“Our associates show up every day to take care of our consumers. So Anthem is committed to helping them be the healthiest they can be.”
The FTTS Accelerator provides startups with mission critical components for success — access to relevant problem statements, engaged decision makers, solution validation with consumers, and a roadmap to scale with government and commercial markets.
Anthem and MCHT are committed to showcasing the top startups impacting our future of digital health. This accelerator will provide a platform for high-impact startups to co-develop and/or validate their solutions, ultimately accelerating their path to scale:
