"right now, we’re still in the early and middle innings on transforming health care as a society." Bill Evans
"I think COVID has helped everyone take digital health really seriously. And they should do so from here on because digital health is here to stay. These companies are stabilizing and they are maturing" Raj Prabhu
"the flood is here and it’s going to continue. Instead of building a dam, build a tributary for these things to happen in an organized, thoughtful way within your organization. The companies that do that will find the diamonds in the rough. " Sean Duffy
