Health2047, as the innovation arm of the American Medical Association, is able to weed out investors and partners whose goals and priorities do not align with the very clear mission statement of the AMA, making it much easier to pursue those goals, according to Jack Stockert, MD, Health2047’s managing director of strategy and business development.

Health2047 teams up with leaders in technology and healthcare to develop and commercialize digital solutions to improve the healthcare industry, focused on four core areas: facilitating data liquidity, improving chronic care, harnessing emerging technologies to serve the patient-physician interface and optimizing the value of healthcare. Since its founding in 2015, the Silicon Valley-based entity has helped launch Akiri, a data liquidity solution, and First Mile Care, a platform providing personalized support and resources to help reverse chronic diseases such as prediabetes.
