SPOTLIGHT: Dyson examines healthcare start-ups

FierceHealthcare editor Matthew Holt sat in on a conference with tech luminary Esther Dyson at the 2006 Consumer Driven Health Care conference in San Francisco this week. Dyson has been active in healthcare lately, particularly in personal health records. She had some suggestions about the direction that VC money might be flowing in healthcare technology. Potentially hot, according to Dyson, are start-ups that focus on disease management and compliance. She was also interested in products and services aimed at pregnant women and those with newborns.
