rock weekly-white-03 (5)
In case you missed the news last week, our portfolio companies dominated the funding charts, including drchrono, Wellframe, and Andreessen Horowitz’s first major health investment — Omada Health.

However, Beltway Insiders had a particularly rough week. HHS got a new Secretary after Sebelius’ flubbed farewell speech and rollout, rumors of the NSA exploiting Heartbleed surfaced, and we got wind of the Medicare Millionaires — the top 2% of providers collecting $15.2B in total payouts.
