Digital Health Startups, Interoperability Challenges, and Informed Consumers with 7wireVenture’s Lee Shapiro
January 14, 2022: Informed connected healthcare consumer. That’s 7wireVentures mantra. How will big tech, private equity and hedge funds engage across digital health this year? Here to talk funding is Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Lee Shapiro. The concept of care is moving outside the four walls of the health system. It’s moving into the home. It’s moving to rural locations. “Care Everywhere and Access to Care” is a huge funding area that will trend in 2022. What distinguishes the winners from the not so successful players in the digital health space? Where does an M&A strategy make the most sense? And what should we make of Oracle’s acquisition of Cerner?
