  • Michael’s general thoughts on entrepreneurs trying to build standalone primary care models and if he thinks this helps or could create more fragmentation in the system
  • Where Michael sees the future of these New Models of Primary Care heading
  • Michael’s thoughts around a blog post he wrote in that “if V1 of the Healthcare technology sector was triggered but the HITECH Act of 2009, the sector is now entering V2.0 where the commentary is focused on Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality solutions to make the healthcare system “capital light” to drive meaningful operating efficiencies from the significant investment of the past three years.”
  • What opportunities Michael believes will develop over the next few years
  • If Michael sees a growth in early stage investment over the next few years or if he thinks we’ll see the percentage grow in Series B and later investments
  • Why Michael thinks “Brands will become even more important”
