The Rock Weekly

Make it or break it

As industry leaders gathered at JPM, there was a fair share of deal making—and breaking. Teladoc doled out $600M for an enterprise telehealth business, Uber and Cerner teamed up on medical transportation, and Dexcom launched an integration with Livongo. But some good things must come to an end. As Proteus’ key partnership with Otsuka dissolved, Epic let customers know it’ll stop integrating with Google Cloud.

Speaking of deals, digital health startups brought in over $270M in funding last week, including our own DrChrono and Vivante Health. And we’re thrilled to announce our newest investment in Precise.ly, who is bringing the potential of consumer genomics to underserved geographies—starting in India. Welcome to the Rock Health family!
