Rock Health Demo Day: Fourth Class of Startups Make Their Debut

Rock Health
February 21, 2013

Wednesday, February 20th marked Rock Health’s fourth Demo Day, hosted again by our friends at UCSF.  The room was packed with 300 mentors, alumni, investors, and press — and the graduating startups killed it.

Our fourth class of startups exemplifies the ongoing transformation of our healthcare system through the use of technology. The 14 digital health startups are working across the industry—with hospitals, payors, and directly with consumers to make meaningful change in an industry that is ripe for innovation. Healthcare is one of the last sectors in our economy to undergo a technology-based transformation and Demo Day was a showcase of this shift.
