Technology has enabled a new wave of healthcare startups.

The healthcare industry is overdue for improvement, from tracking expenses to mobilizing health-minded services with new technology. Health startups are being incubated and accelerated by organizations like Rock Health and Startup Health. In fact, PITCH SF 2013 Startup Competition finalist Wendy Nguyen, CEO and co-founder of HealthyOut, is being incubated by Blueprint Health in New York this winter/spring.
