Unprecedented Funding in an Unprecedented Time The Rock Health Podcast

    • Health & Fitness

Digital health funding had a wild ride through the first half of 2020—first hitting a record $3.1B in Q1, then hitting the brakes in April as COVID-19 spread rapidly around the globe. Despite this downswing, investors came roaring back in May as several regulatory and reimbursement barriers to digital health adoption were brushed aside in a rush to keep healthcare systems operational in the midst of the pandemic.

Rock Health Managing Director & CEO Bill Evans shares some surprising insights about fundraising in the midst of a pandemic and recession in his conversation with Kaiser Permanente Ventures Director Liz Rockett, Bessemer Venture Partners Partner Steve Kraus, and leading digital health strategic counsel Fenwick & West Partner Michael Esquivel, as they look back on the past six months and look forward to the future of the market.

Note: This podcast was recorded on 7/30, prior to the Teladoc acquisition of Livongo.
