Riding the trend wave of seed accelerators, San Francisco-based accelerator Rock Health has named 8 of the 11 startups in its inaugural 2011 class.  Rock Health focuses on startups that create health-related mobile and web applications. By bringing together the brightest minds in technology and health, they provide crucial funding, mentorship opportunities, and operational support to selected high-potential, early stage startups, nurturing the next generation of the digital health ecosystem.

Accelerators generally don’t release the names of their startups until the conclusion of the program; however, 8 of the Rock Health startups are far along in developing their web and mobile apps, while 3 Rock Health startups are in stealth mode.

Founded in 2011, Rock Health is funded by top health, technology, venture capital, and consumer product companies and is supported by a wide network of mentors, advisors, and partners, and they are affiliated with the Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation, Harvard Medical School, and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.  Together, the team turns creative ideas into transformative tools that can be swiftly adopted by the marketplace to revolutionize health.

Rock Health’s newly launched launched first class of start-ups are:

BrainBot – technology to improve mental performance

CellScope – at-home diagnosis of diseases

Genomera – personal health collaboration

Health In Reach – medical procedure marketplace

Omada Health – clinical treatment social network

Pipette – patient monitoring and education

Skimble – mobile fitness

WeSprout – connecting health data and community
