eweek: VCs AWOL on Health Care IT Investments

"Venture capitalists gave a bad prognosis to health IT care reform in 2008. While the VCs lavished almost $5 billion each on general software and biotechnology and another $3.4 billion on medical devices, the industry dropped just $195 million on health care services. President Obama's $19 billion dedicated to health IT initiatives in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will help, but health care inflation still looms as a major barrier to investments."
