ZyDoc, a New York-based medical informatics company, has been accepted into the Stony Brook Incubator Program at Stony Brook University. The incubator program, which helps technologically innovative companies grow by providing them with a variety of support resources and services, has four locations totaling more than 100,000 square feet. The ZyDoc research and development (R&D) team has moved into the New York State Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT).
“This is a wonderful opportunity to advance ZyDoc’s research and development in cloud-based, [artificial intelligence]-driven medical knowledge management,” says James M. Maisel, MD, ZyDoc chairman. “ZyDoc has multiple disruptive enabling technologies in development now. We have a small but immensely talented and dedicated in-house team of developers, programmers, and project managers. Through the incubator program, we will gain invaluable support in technology development as well as help in focusing our commercialization strategies.”
Ann-Marie Scheidt, PhD, chair of the incubator program’s tenant selection and review committee, welcomed ZyDoc to the incubator program. “We are delighted that you have chosen the incubator based in CEWIT for your R&D efforts to address the formidable challenges of new natural language processing software and related medical data applications,” Scheidt says. “Stony Brook’s research talent and experience in these areas promises exciting and mutually rewarding collaborations at the leading edge of knowledge.”
As an HIT innovator, ZyDoc is well aligned with the Stony Brook incubator mission. Selection criteria for acceptance into the program include “consistency of the ventures identified or planned industry or business sector with [its] mission of supporting the future leaders of Long Island's high technology economy ... [and] demonstration of capacity to achieve the venture's business goals including expertise in chosen technology field(s), market assessment, management team, [and] adequacy of financial support.”
