MATTER and NODE.Health partner to accelerate the development and adoption of digital health solutions across the New York region

NODE.Health and MATTER will work together to expand and support the New York digital health ecosystem by harnessing NODE.Health’s growing network of health systems committed to digital transformation with MATTER’s expertise in incubating emerging solutions.

New York, NY, December 9, 2019 — NODE.Health (Network of Digital Evidence in Health), the leading professional association focused on bringing evidence-based medicine practices to digital health, has partnered with MATTER, the premier healthcare incubator and innovation hub, to support the development and growth of New York’s digital health ecosystem. The collaboration was formed following MATTER’s selection by the New York City Economic Development Corporation to provide resources and programming to accelerate healthcare startup development and foster collaboration between entrepreneurs and industry-leading organizations in the New York region.

NODE.Health will work with MATTER to bring its growing catalog of evidence-based content and lessons learned that have originated from its validation service line. NODE.Health’s expanding health system membership base will complement MATTER’s experience in incubating companies by connecting emerging solutions with health systems committed to, and passionate about, transformation through enhanced evidence-based practices.

“MATTER is a premier and quickly growing player in the digital innovation ecosystem,” said NODE.Health founder Ashish Atreja, “and we couldn’t be more honored to be working with them. They are dedicated to supporting the transformation of the industry through measured, evidence-based practices. They have been, and will continue to be great partners.”

NODE.Health and MATTER will collaborate on developing educational content for startups and health system executives. NODE.Health will provide faculty and experts to help lead seminars and counsel entrepreneurs as they develop digital solutions. The two organizations will also host community-building events in 2020 leading up to MATTER’s opening in New York City.

“We look forward to working with NODE.Health and the extraordinary group of health systems the organization represents,” said MATTER CEO Steven Collens. “This partnership will be particularly helpful to us and our community of healthcare entrepreneurs as we prepare to enter New York City.”
