    UnityPoint Health Ventures invests financially and strategically in early-stage health care companies that help us solve the real problems facing our health system. We focus our efforts in four key areas: Care Experience, Care Financing, Care Delivery and Care Innovation. Founded in 2019 and based in Des Moines, IA, UnityPoint Health Ventures makes direct investments in ideas and partners that provide an easier, more personal experience for patients and providers. As the venture capital arm of UnityPoint Health--one of the nation's most integrated health systems--the firm invests in opportunities that improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of health care. In addition to strategic investing, UnityPoint Health Ventures provides dedicated resources to accelerate portfolio company traction within UnityPoint Health and beyond. Unity invests in Digital Therapeutics, Health IT, Tech-Enabled Services, Medical Devices and Diagnostics. The firm does not invest in Pharma, Biopharma or Drug Discovery. The firm expects to invest in up to 30 companies using its $100 million Innovation Fund. The first check is $1-3 million.
