It looks like traditional VCs might have been upstaged by corporate funds. Uncover the latest trends in our Digital Health Funding 2016 Midyear Review.

Among them were two important pieces on health reform, including one by Obama poking holes in Obamacare and another by Politico's Dan Diamond on the health law’s secret jobs program.
