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.”

UPMC Enterprises Product Designer hosts AMA
I had the opportunity to be a featured speaker for Product School’s weekly AMA, or “Ask Me Anything,” with their community of over 21,000 current and aspiring product managers. Usually the featured speaker is a Product Manager, so I was happy to share my human-centered design approach as a Product Designer with their community.
