FierceHealthcare's Fierce 15 of 2019

(FierceHealthcare)

One company was formed early in 2018 when a group of hospitals—fed up with drug shortages and price spikes—promised to upend the market.

Another raised $45 million to support its quest to transform surgery using artificial intelligence, while yet another is trying to reinvent community cancer care.

This is just a taste of the inaugural class of FierceHealthcare's Fierce 15 honorees.

In total, this year’s 15 companies saw more than $700 million in funding rounds and capital commitments. But beyond that, each brought a passion for using their unique solution to truly impact patients.

Big and small, high-tech and not, we’re honoring this collection of companies across the U.S. that are trying to change the world by changing the healthcare industry.
