At Vator Splash Health 2016, Vijay Pande, Partner at Andreessen Horrowitz gave (what was rated the most popular presentation at Splash Health) a talk about how healthcare technology is starting to see the same advancements as technology, in terms of costs and power. Just as technology costs have dropped sharply, while power has advanced sizably, the same is happening in biology. It begins with declining costs of sensors and genetic sequencing technologies.
