Healthcare start-ups utilizing artificial intelligence should take note.

Mayo Clinic launched its artificial intelligence (AI) start-up program last week with four early stage health tech companies. The 20-week program, called Mayo Clinic Platform Accelerate, is designed to help AI-based start-ups get market-ready by offering access to Mayo Clinic experts in regulatory, clinical, technology and business domains with a focus on AI model validation and clinical readiness. The program also features additional expert assistance from Google and electronic health records giant Epic.
