Rock Weekly: 10 healthcare things cheaper than WhatsApp
February 24, 2014
What are ten things in healthcare cheaper than WhatsApp? For one, MMR vaccines for every child in the world, six times over.
Last week, our portfolio companies flooded the airwaves, including Sessions’ acquisition by MyFitnessPal. In case you missed it, you can find another Rock Health deluge at HIMSS this week — catch The Activity Exchange, Amplify Health, drchrono, Factor 14, Mango Health, Moxe Health, and Wellframe at the healthcare bonanza.
We’re excited to announce ten companies showcasing at our SXSWearables brunch at SXSW next week! Join us for mimosas, fine fare, and Misfit Shines — oh and there may or may not be a monkey in attendance.
