In an attempt to honor its commitment of advancing medical practices to improve public health, the American Medical Association (AMA) has invested $15 million toward becoming a founding partner of healthcare innovation company Health2047.

The Silicon Valley-based company combines strategy, design and venture disciplines with leading companies, physicians and entrepreneurs to improve healthcare. Health2047 will use AMA’s expertise and relationships with physicians to develop new products, tools and resources that deliver healthcare to patients.

Madara, M.D. “Health2047’s product orientation and entrepreneurial DNA will help forge new paths and bring commercial solutions to market faster.”

The AMA’s financial commitment to establish Health2047 is a big step toward expanding its innovation ecosystem. The Chicago-based organization recently integrated innovation into its work, which has resulted in the creating of new physician-oriented digital tools as well as targeted engagement of health care startups.
