This first-of-its-kind fund is focused on investing in innovative health care products, services, and technologies designed to address critical areas of cardiovascular care. Dr. Joon Sup Lee, co-director of the UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute (HVI), expects that technology startups focused on such areas as prevention and patient education will be part of the fund’s investments, while capital-intensive drugs and devices will not. Cardeation Capital “is really another opportunity to fill some of the gaps in cardiovascular care,” he says.
“As one of the largest integrated health systems in the United States, UPMC is making significant investments in the disruptive technologies needed to dramatically improve the quality and effectiveness of healthcare,” says Tal Heppenstall, president of UPMC Enterprises. “We expect that Cardeation Capital, working closely with our world-renowned clinicians at HVI, will play a critical role in this strategy for the benefit of our patients.”
