Speaking on the state of digital health last week, some called the gap between technology and life sciences “pitiful“, while patients and providers alike are hungry for innovation in the space. Meanwhile, others continue placing huge bets to support its growth (including us).

We’re proud to announce three new investments on the East Coast (and new digs in NYC). Meet 1DocWay, which is bringing telemedicine to underserved populations;Arsenal Health, maker of predictive technology that helps providers optimize bookings; and Caeden, a design-driven company developing truly wearable technology.
