Rock Weekly: Digital health exits on the rise



September 3rd, 2013

Audax Health dominated headlines this week (save for twerking), adding $20M to its coffers to reinvent corporate wellness (RedBrick Health and Keas also raised in recent months). This multi-billion industry penetrates more than 90% of large employers, yet most consumers can’t name a single brand in the space. Wrap your head around what’s hot in healthcare, with this week’s headlines.
