Funding the Future of Healthcare

Healthcare is undergoing a massive transformation. From navigating new priorities and dealing with unprecedented financial impacts, health systems are overwhelmed with managing and charting the course for their business. So while the role of digital is paramount to the industry's future, in that environment, startups - regardless of the strength of solution - need a partner ‘on the inside’ to help them navigate that environment.
