Digital health investments are skyrocketing. Some 250-plus startups raised at least $2M in 2014 and $4 billion was invested by the venture capital community, according to Rock Health. The rabid interest is one reason Vator is shining the spotlight on this space to understand where investors are putting their dollars to work and what kind of innovations are emerging with its new Splash event: Vator Splash Health 2015.
Vator, one of the largest business networks for high-tech entrepreneurs and investors, is holding its inaugural Splash Health event at the Kaiser Center in Oakland, CA on February 12th. It promises to be one of the most insightful healthcare conferences bringing together founders and CEOs of leading healthtech startups that are starting to shape the landscape.
We all know visits to the doctor haven’t changed in decades. But doctors’ offices are becoming digital. And that’s helping to usher in new kinds of practices to serve patients.
Tom Lee, Founder and CEO of One Medical Group, is turning the traditional doctor’s office visit on its head. Its new model for primary care hopes to improve the experience patients have at doctors’ offices by allowing them to schedule appointments online, get prescriptions online, and see lab results online. One Medical Group has raised $116 million in financing. Vator’s Bambi Francisco will be sitting down in a Fireside Chat to find out how Lee plans to expand his centers across the country, and how he scaled his company.
Hospitals and medical groups are required to put their health records online by the end of this year. This push to convert from paper offices to digital ones is helping Practice Fusion become one of the dominant electronic health record providers. Join Ryan Howard as he gets on stage to talk about his plans to drive revenue this year, and discuss his secret to signing up the first 1,000 doctors. Practice Fusion has raised nearly $160 million in financing.
