It's no secret that healthcare startups are hot right now. There are a lot of innovative companies out there trying to make it easier for everyone to get the care they need. These companies do everything from improving doctor/patient communication, to simplifying health insurance, to helping individuals track their own health and fitness. Separately they may exist in their own niches but together they benefit everyone – patients, doctors, insurers, caregivers, and even those who are perfectly healthy and rarely need medical care. It's a trickle-down effect that is making the human race healthier little by little.
