NJII partners with Corsis to foster digital health IT innovation

The New Jersey Innovation Institute, an NJIT Corp., announced Thursday a partnership with Corsis LLC, a health care risk and compliance scoring provider.

The partnership will provide NJII’s over 150 Health IT Connections companies access to Corsis’ platform, which scores health care companies on risk and compliance.

“The ecosystem of a health care company is filled with obstacles, and compliance is oftentimes a big hurdle for startup companies. The Corsis application will help NJII cohort companies meet their compliance requirements, allowing them more opportunities to focus on innovation” said Judith Sheft associate vice president, technology and enterprise development at NJII.

NJII’s Health IT Connections program aims to connect health information technology innovators with people in the health care industry. Applications, NJII said, are currently open for the next Health IT Connections cohort.

“We see our partnership with NJII as a way to introduce our platform to a wide audience of digital health companies, giving them the tools they need to more readily implement innovative solutions and foster innovation throughout the healthcare environment” said David Barnett, chairman and chief operating officer at Corsis.
