Denver-based NextHealth Technologies, a developer of healthcare software used to help health plans encourage their members to improve their health, has raised $8.5M in a Series A funding. The funding was led by Norwest Venture Partners, and also included the company's un-nnamed, prior investors. NextHealth is led by Eric Grossman.
