Today on Health in 2 Point 00, there appears to be money falling from the sky… There’s been a lot of funding going on this week. In this episode, Jess asks me about Livongo acquiring myStrength, which provides digital behavioral health solutions; Medicare Advantage startup Clover Health’s $500 million raise; real-world data analytics platform Aetion’s $27 million raise; men’s wellness company Hims’ $100 million raise; and urine analysis company Healthy.io’s $18 million raise. Be sure to stay tuned for next week’s big preview episode of HIMSS.—Matthew Holt.
