The venture capital firm with the tagline "software is eating the world" thinks it's now time to apply that to your doctor's office, too. 

Andreessen Horowitz on Wednesday promoted Julie Yoo to general partner, joining Jorge Conde and Vijay Pande at the firm's biofund. In that role, Yoo will be investing in all the ways healthcare is paid for and administered. In short, her thesis will be: software is eating care delivery.

To date, Andreessen Horowitz has launched two biofunds, which in total have $650 million to invest in startups focused on the intersection of biology and technology. The company has also made some bets on healthcare companies like health insurance startup Devoted Health. 

Going forward, the hope is to go deeper into the intersection of technology and the ways healthcare is paid for and delivered.
