Before Livongo set digital health records for its IPO, it started 2019 by launching a brand-new category of healthcare company: the Applied Health Signals company. How is this category different than what we already think of when we think about digital health and healthcare? How is it distinct from health tech’s other emerging classification, digital therapeutics? Jennifer Schneider, Livongo’s President, explains why the company started the new category, which is intended for those who are working at the intersection of data science, clinical impact, and behavioral outcomes. Could your company be an Applied Health Signals Company? Listen in to hear Jenny talk about how Livongo’s “AIAI engine” drove the decision to start the new classification. If your tech works like hers…maybe you are!
What’s next for digital health’s premier IPO, Livongo? Executive Chairman Glen Tullman says “the best day of going public is the day you go public,” but there’s got to be more to it than that right?! We get inquisitive about acquisitions, keeping the market happy, and how his applied health signals company is blurring the lines between tech and healthcare. Is Livongo a tech company or a healthcare company? What does that AI-plus-AI really add up to?

One of the fastest growing chronic condition management companies in healthcare, Livongo just made some big new hires and minted a new category in health tech called “Applied Health Signals.” What’s this? Well, if your new health solution ties together devices, data science, coaching, and clinical management, YOU might be an Applied Health Signals company. CEO Glen Tullman walks us through the new concept, shares his insight on the good & bad of consumer tech companies heading into health… then explains the strategery behind changes to the company’s C-suite and confronts the rumors I’ve been hearing about an IPO.
