Five years of digital health

September 8, 2015

Five years ago, two Harvard Business School students set out to build a community dedicated to changing healthcare—and Rock Health (never ‘Rock’) was born. From our first office behind a Chinatown scarf shop to the day we killed our accelerator, our commitment to that community has remained. Since then nearly every tech giant, the FDA, and your mom embraced the space too. Dive into digital health history.

Thank you for being a part of this epic journey (which has only just begun).
