Accelerating the Development of High-Quality Healthcare and Diagnostic Solutions
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) launched the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADx®) initiative in 2020 to speed innovation in the development, commercialization, and implementation of technologies for COVID-19 testing. The RADx-Tech innovation funnel compressed the technology development timeline from years down to just months. VentureWell provided infrastructure support to the energized community of RADx innovators to identify, develop, and launch crucial COVID-19 testing solutions. This urgent work continues and continues to evolve—to keep up with the emergence of new COVID-19 variants, to ensure that testing reaches all communities that need it and ultimately, to enable greater preparedness for future pandemics. The RADx initiative also continues to grow, providing significant advances to the current healthcare paradigm across a range of clinical indications like HIV/AIDS, maternal health, and monkeypox.
In an effort to leverage the RADx-Tech model for rapid acceleration of innovative technologies, VentureWell provides highly specialized and uniquely experienced contracted consultants, vendors, and service providers capable of providing critical project, program, and portfolio support.
