Southeast Shoutouts | Nashville’s Reimagine Care finalist in CancerX Accelerator in Tampa

The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) has announced the 2024 "Top 40 Innovative Companies" in the Peach State ahead of next week's Georgia Technology Summit.

From Tampa, FL:

A start-up from Nashville is one of 16 selected to participate in a national, private-public partnered accelerator program co-hosted by Moffitt Cancer Center and Digital Medicine Society. Reimagine Care has a platform that facilitates cancer patient treatment from the home. It was a finalist in a Tampa General Hospital innovation challenge.

Known as the CancerX Accelerator, the program aims to promote and fortify digital innovations in oncology by providing promising start-ups an opportunity to collaborate with leading cancer organizations. Participants benefit from valuable mentorship, comprehensive training, and direct access to key players in the healthcare industry, including providers, payers, and pharmaceutical companies. This collaborative environment enables start-ups to develop, test, and implement their cancer-focused innovation on a larger scale.

Five of the 16 teams are from other countries, and none are located in Florida.
