Hi there -

I’m David Van Sickle (DVS). I started this personal newsletter to share ideas about digital health, and to encourage others to build more ambitious healthcare experiences. I’ve also been writing about partnership and acquisition strategy.

I’m a medical anthropologist (PhD) with over 15 years of experience developing and commercializing digital health technologies. From 2010, I was the co-founder and CEO of Propeller Health (acquired by ResMed), a digital health company dedicated to improving the management of asthma and COPD. Today I serve a number of different healthtech companies in a variety of roles. To learn more about me or to connect, please visit my personal site, or say hello on Twitter or LinkedIn.

With this newsletter, I aim to share what I’m learning and what I wish I had learned earlier in my career! You can expect to receive a post from me every week or two, depending.

It would be best if you subscribed. It’s free and that’ll get you full access to the newsletter and website. You’ll never miss an update. Plus, you’ll get access to conversations and threads on here that are only open to subscribers.
