strong>Help me spread the word! Do you know anyone who would like to present the piece of health technology they have spent so much time on to industry leaders and representatives from the angel / VC community?

This is such a great opportunity for the Health community. This past year was the first time 'health' as a category was included as a specific track with in the SXSW Interactive festival. With the success there SXSW has agreed to insert health into the SXSW Accelerator as a dedicated category.

The health category is about patient-centric health applications and technologies that connect patients, families, physicians, pharmacists, care providers (hospital, clinics) and benefit providers-aka the care team-to share timely, relevant health data and drive better outcomes at affordable and sustainable cost levels.
