August 18, 2014

We’ve seen a lot this year, including the continued obscurity of digital health regulations, a giant stamp of approval for telemedicine, and the continued rise of obesity and chronic disease.

We’re excited to announce the latest additions to the Rock Health portfolio which are tackling these very problems. And to make our startup support even better, we’re also announcing three new corporate partners. Without further ado, meet the new Rock Health additions.
