Boston, New York and San Francisco digital health - Canadian Technology Accelerator

Are you looking to scale your digital health business? Boston, New York, and San Francisco are home to world leading digital health markets with growing investment, sales and partnership opportunities for Canadian companies. Healthcare worker burnout, financial constraints, rapid changes in US regulation and access to care have shown how digital health solutions can provide new methods of health care delivery, improve patient outcomes and reduce costs.

The Canadian Technology Accelerator (CTA) for digital health can give you the knowledge and connections you need to enter and succeed in the US market.
