Rock Weekly: 17 can’t-miss things at SXSW


March 9, 2015

Last week we announced two of our latest investments. Meet Chrono Therapeutics, a digital therapy company that combines smart drug delivery with behavioral medicine software to help people quit smoking—and Evidation Health, a company born out of GE, Stanford, and The Activity Exchange that measures the real-world effectiveness of these exact types of digital health products.

Fancy yourself some digital health events soon? Here’s 17 can’t-miss events for health nerds at SXSW next week and everything you need to know about interoperability—at our office on 3/19.
