Companies addressing healthcare disparities, fertility challenges and end-of-life planning are among the seven members of the latest 1501 Health cohort.
The participants in the 1501 Health Incubator’s second class were selected from a pool of 112 applicants, according to this week’s announcement. The septet represents a continuation of the partnership that Healthworx, the investment wing of insurance giant CareFirst, and the local healthcare corporation LifeBridge Health consecrated by launching 1501 Health last year. The incubator is designed to help early-stage health tech startups secure investment and scale their operations, and graduated its first cohort earlier this year.
Among the companies in this year’s cohort is Ryse Health, based in both Baltimore and Arlington, Virginia, an endocrinology practice whose technology coordinates care between its providers and patients with type 2 diabetes
