Ding dong—healthcare’s front door has gone digital

Even before the pandemic, an increasing number of consumers were turning to Dr. Google—a trend that underscores the tech giant’s strategy to reinvent how people access health information. With virtual care offering greater convenience, CVS’s Chief Digital Officer is betting the shift to telemedicine will continue. We reflected on this trend and identified five ways health systems can build or refine their digital front door strategy. And we’re putting our money where our mouth is: Rock Health is proud to announce our latest investment in Brightline’s $20M round, as they expand virtual pediatric behavioral health services to families across California (and more states coming soon)!

Speaking of virtual care, don’t miss the fireside chat with Omada Health CEO Sean Duffy at this year’s Rock Health Summit. We’ll also be unveiling data from our Diversity in Digital Health survey, which is still open to managers and above at US digital health startups. As a thank you for being a Rock Weekly subscriber, we’re launching an exclusive discount—use RWSub at checkout, and we’ll see you on September 22-23!
