Vinod Khosla has not been shy about criticizing the slow pace at which health care has embraced technology. In 2016, he wrote “suboptimal outcomes result from the incomplete knowledge and personal biases of today’s system.” With substantial personal wealth – he was ranked 368 on the Forbes 400 with an estimated wealth of $2.2 billion – Khosla is investing heavily in ventures that are trying to increase the pace at which technology changes health care. Khosla Ventures has funded more than 30 health care startups.

At the Health Evolution Summit, he sat down with Molly Coye, executive in residence AVIA, for “A Perspective: The Great Beyond–Technology + Humans Deliver Health,” a conversation in which he expressed enthusiasm for some of the innovations he sees taking shape.
