Healthcare headlines have been all around consolidation in the industry: Walmart and Humana; Aetna and CVS; Amazon, JP Morgan, and Berkshire Hathaway.
In this hallway-style conversation, a16z bio team partners — Jorge Conde and Vijay Pande, with Jeffrey Low — discuss what’s going on as we see more vertical integration across the healthcare value chain. Will it decrease costs? How will these different “consortiums” drive value to patients, at a local level? And finally, what opportunities open up as a result of all this?
Jorge Conde is a general partner on the Bio + Health team at Andreessen Horowitz, focused on therapeutics, diagnostics, life sciences tools, and software.
Vijay Pande is the founding general partner of the Bio + Health team at Andreessen Horowitz, focused on the cross-section of biology and computer science.
