Health in 2 Point 00, Episode 90 | One year older…

Today on Health in 2 Point 00, we’re wishing Matthew a happy birthday!

On Episode 90, Jess and I talk about the drama around Amazon PillPack and Surescripts, HelloHeart’s $12 million raise, and Cerner selling its health data. In the end, the data is going to have to flow after this battle between Surescripts and PillPack. For HelloHeart’s blood pressure and cardiovascular health management platform, have they found their niche or is it too little too late with others like Livongo, Omada and Vivify in the space already? Finally, Cerner has put in their earnings call that they’re going to develop a business model around selling their data, sending ePatient Dave on a Tweet storm, but how big of a deal is this really? —Matthew Holt

“Alexa, Open Symptom Checker” Gets You This Health Startup’s App | Piotr Orzechowski Infermedica

By JESSICA DaMASSA, WTF HEALTH

One of Europe’s top health tech startups, Infermedica out of Poland just closed a $3.65M funding round for its suite of tools that help patients figure out the best place to go to get care. It’s a patient-routing / symptom-checker with “AI under the hood” that is delivered via an app, chatbot, and voice application for Alexa. (In fact, they “own” the symptom checker that opens when you ask Alexa to “open symptom checker.”) Piotr Orzechowski talks about the full range of ways Infermedica is engaging patients and how they are scaling up their provider facing products as a result of this influx of funding.

Health in 2 Point 00 Episode 89 | IPOs, Oscar and Fitbit

Today on Health in 2 Point 00, it’s IPO day! On Episode 89, Jess asks me about the recent IPOs, Oscar Health getting into Medicare Advantage, and Fitbit accuracy in people of color. Jess asks me to weigh in on whether Livongo’s IPO was better than we expected and it’s safe to say that they are growing fast. On the flip side, the “silent” IPO that no one seems to be talking about is Health Catalyst, which is also doing quite well with a $1.6 billion valuation although they are not growing as fast as Livongo is. Next, Oscar Health decided to enter into Medicare Advantage, which is not surprising because that’s where the real money is in the insurance side. Finally, Fitbits and other wearables may not be tracking heart rates accurately in people of color, so what does this mean for the wearables industry—and their potential use for medical purposes? —Matthew Holt
