Connected fitness company Peloton priced its IPO last night, raising $1.16 billion with shares priced at $29 a piece. That price didn't hold for too long, with the company closing its day out at $25.76.

IPO fever is hitting a bit of a frenzy amidst a slew of recent listings, and with it has come a renewed focus on the exact boundaries of digital health — or, alternately, of health-tech, connected health, eHealth, or any of the other myriad monikers for the intersections of healthcare, technology and innovation.
