Few can make a stronger case for the health of Digital Health then Robert Mittendorff, MD, partner at Norwest Venture Partners, co-chair of the Digital Healthcare Innovation Summit, and emergency room physician.
In this Breaking Health podcast, Dr. Mittendorff points to the strength of portfolio company iRhythm, which sports a market cap over $1 billion as evidence of the potential for strong outcomes in Digital Health investments.
He also explains how that success is influencing his vetting process as he reviews new deals and identifies those areas that intrigue him the most including IT companies that serve pharma, genomics companies that can aid in diagnosis, and companies that employ artificial intelligence effectively.
Dr. Mittendorff credits the FDA and its new commissioner, Scott Gottlieb, MD, for introducing “the most well thought out approach to Digital Health we have seen.”
Finally, he sees an enormous future in companies like VisitPay that will help patients manage payments for the healthcare they need.
