Top healthtech VCs are investing heavily in technologies that are advancing value-based care models

What’s the criteria they’re considering? Where are value-based care models working?


Vator teamed up with HP to hold the SplashX: Invent Health event, where we asked some of the most prominent VCs, entreprenuers and members of the health community to give us their thoughts about the state of the healthcare system.

The topic covered was value-based care: the road to accountable healthcare economics. Value-based care is when caregivers are paid on the basis of quality vs per service. But how is quality measured? How can caregivers deliver quality without patients also doing their part? There's a lot of challenges to this model, but a lot of upside for everyone.

Our first panel consisted of venture capitalists investing in digital health. It was moderated by Dorothy Vinsky (Royse Law Firm) and Archana Dubey (Global Medical Director, Hewlett-Packard) included Emily Melton ( DFJ Venture), Rick Moss (Partner, Better Ventures), David J. Kim, MD (CEO, DigiTx Partners), Lynne Chou O’Keefe (Partner, Kleiner Perkins).
