SAN DIEGO, May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Torrey Pines Investment announced today the creation of a $60 million fund to finance innovative start-ups in the areas of point-of-care diagnostics and treatment, novel organizational and financial models of health services delivery, including in-home and virtual care, as well as artificial intelligence and deep learning healthcare support systems. The main goal of the fund is to promote the development of these cutting-edge medical and healthcare technologies while providing patients with fast and convenient healthcare services.
"Healthcare is moving towards digitized personalized care which gives patients the convenient and accessible medical services where and when they need it," commented Nikolay Savchuk, Managing Partner at Torrey Pines Investment. "The TealTech fund focuses on the three main directions of fundamental shifts in healthcare: the medical technologies innovations, digital care, and artificial intelligence tools. We believe that the future of healthcare lies in the accessibility and flexibility that digital care and point-of-care diagnostics and treatment provide, as well as in the precision and convenience that computer-assisted tools help deliver. Thus, we created the fund to help advance innovative start-ups that bring convenient, digitalized, modern solutions to patients."
