Kind words
from our

“AVIA helps forward-thinking health systems identify and act as a group on key problems and opportunities in which technology may be a solution. AVIA’s approach drives innovation in the health system and creates a healthier commercial environment for early-stage companies.”
Aaron Martin, EVP, Chief Digital/Innovation Officer,
Providence St. Joseph Health
“Cohorts allow us to ‘stress test’ new solutions in a way that is much more efficient than doing it on our own. We get to collaborate with other healthcare systems addressing a similar issue and work with the company to help make the solution better.”
Dan Derman, MD, President of Northwestern Memorial Physicians Group and Vice President for Operations, Northwestern Medicine
“AVIA did a masterful job of bringing us all together and creating some unity in our vision. The power in this process is really our ability to act as a cohort, not as individual organizations.”
Adam Silverman, MD, FACP Physician Lead,
St. Francis Care
“Highly efficient process. It would have taken us 1.5 years to get to this point.”
Brian Patty, MD, VP and CMIO,
Rush University Medical Center
“This process has been an absolute joy.”
Blix Rice, Administrator, Integrated Health Services,
Greenville Health System
