10 Companies to Watch at Health 2.0

There are a lot of ‘big’ things happening at Health 2.0- big companies, big names, big numbers. Big is good, great even, but there’s an important thing to remember about ‘big’: everyone who goes big starts small at some point. This fall at our Silicon Valley conference, ten startups from The Iron Yard’s digital health accelerator will take the stage to show Health 2.0 what they’ve got.

Some are in fairly uncharted territory. Prime Genomics is a game changer for diagnostics, with an early stage breast cancer test using only saliva (with 17 other biomakers waiting in the wings). Early studies show it’s more accurate, cheaper, and less invasive  than mammograms.

Chartspan is the first to admit they’re playing in a tired space: personal healthcare records. What do they have that the 800 pound gorillas in the space didn’t? A fully automated process using advanced OCR technology that circumvents roadblock other PHR’s have faced, manual data entry.
