We’ve got big news to pack in this little blog post, so sit tight for some exciting updates.

First—we’re proud to announce the eleven startups that will be participating in our fifth accelerator class.  It was the most competitive application round yet, and we are honored to have these companies join the family:

Amplify Health Amplify Health builds population management tools for at risk provider groups.
Anapsis Anapsis is a research platform and marketplace for scientific and statistical computing.
Augmedix Augmedix is a service for medical doctors that’s powered by Google Glass.
Cancer IQ CancerIQ is harnessing big data to accelerate personalized cancer care.
CRIXlabs CRIXlabs builds software for de-risking drug development.
Fluid Fluid helps people diagnose the flu in minutes, without the doctor’s visit.
Lift Labs Lift Labs makes active stabilization tools for people living with tremor.
Sensentia Sensentia is developing a new breed of intelligent systems for healthcare administration and operation.
Smart Patients Smart Patients is an online community for motivated cancer patients and their caregivers.
Spire Spire is a wearable sensor that tracks both physical and psychological fitness to lower stress and increase productivity.
ThriveOn ThriveOn delivers mobile mental health programs from screen to treatment customized for every individual.

Second, we are welcoming three new corporate partners to our roster of supporters—Alexandria Real Estate Equities, a life sciences real estate and venture firm,  Boehringer Ingelheim, one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, and Ogilvy Public Relations, a global public relations agency with specialities in consumer marketing and healthcare, among others.  Each of these companies not only recognizes the potential for digital health but is also passionate about engaging with the startup ecosystem. We’re excited to add their perspectives and expertise to our program and look forward to working alongside them in helping our entrepreneurs build successful, sustainable businesses in healthcare.

Lastly, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be moving to a brand-new home in Mission Bay in Q4 of this year. We’ve enjoyed the past few years in our Chinatown office, but are ready to move to a bigger space near startup-friendly SoMa and UCSF’s new Center for Digital Health Innovation.

Our new space, owned by Alexandria Real Estate, will have enough room for our startups as well as a community space for digital health meetups, events, and more. This is an exciting new chapter for us, and we can’t wait to host you in our new digs!
