NEW YORK -- December 05, 2012
OneMedPlace announced today that Peter Neupert of Health Evolution Partners
and Jack Young of Qualcomm Ventures will participate in programming for the
6^th Annual OneMedForum, January 7-9, 2013, in San Francisco. The two experts
will take part in a panel dedicated to ‘Digital and Connected Health,’ an
emerging sector with significant and diverse investment opportunities.
“I have been following Peter Neupert since he founded Drugstore.com, one of
the first and most important dotcoms,” said Brett Johnson, CEO of OneMedPlace,
producer of OneMedForum. “Peter has been at the forefront of innovation as
both an entrepreneur and a technologist. He has unique insight into the role
of communications in healthcare delivery.” At Microsoft, Mr. Neupert led the
Microsoft Health Vault, responsible for driving the company’s strategy to
improve healthcare around the world through software innovation. He is
well-versed on the challenges and opportunities in empowering individuals to
become more engaged and responsible for their own health and wellness. He now
brings his unique perspective to Health Evolution Partners.
Qualcomm Incorporated launched the $100M Qualcomm Life Fund (QLF) last
December. The QLF is managed by Qualcomm Ventures, Qualcomm’s investment arm,
and its charter is to focus on investing in venture-backed digital/wireless
health start-ups, including the areas of wellness and fitness, chronic disease
care, remote diagnosis and monitoring, healing and aging in place, health
informatics and tangential spaces.
Jack Young, who leads Qualcomm Ventures’ investment effort in digital/wireless
health, sees a developing trend in the aging population and the role that
telemedicine can play in managing chronic care. Tools to better communicate
with patients and manage healthcare represent both a critical need and a
significant opportunity. Qualcomm just announced a new investment in
ClearCare, which provides a SaaS technology platform for home care agencies
serving seniors who choose to age at home. In addition to ClearCare, the QLF
has six portfolio companies: Airstrip, AliveCor, Cambridge Temperature
Concepts, Sotera, Telcare and Noom.
“The panel, entitled ‘Connected Health: Technology in the Hands of Patients
Changes Health Delivery: A Brave New World of Medicine,’ is an important theme
for this conference,” Brett Johnson added. In addition to a session with
experts, OneMedForum will showcase public and private companies with some of
the most intriguing innovations in this space. Public company presentations
will be webcasted live at OneMedTV, available globally to the OneMedPlace
