Joining Matthew Holt (@boltyboy) on #THCBGang for an hour of conversation on the happenings in health care and beyond were regulars medical historian Mike Magee (@drmikemagee) and writer Kim Bellard (@kimbbellard), and TWO special guests.
Shantanu Nundy @DrNundy is Chief Medical Officer of Accolade and last year we had him on to talk about his book Care After Covid. This week, with Lisa Cooper and Kedar Mate he wrote in Jama adding “advancing health equity” as a new part of the “quintuple aim.”
Our second guest was Janae Sharp @CoherenceMed from the Sharp Index, which is dedicated to increasing awareness of and reducing physician suicide and burnout through support and data science
Were we ever going to be able to cover everything about physician burnout and health equity in just one hour? Yes, it was unlikely but we gave it our best shot!
The video is preserved below. If you’d rather listen to the episode, the audio is available from Friday as a weekly podcast available on our iTunes & Spotify channels.
How many more beloved TV characters does Peleton have to give a heart attack to before somebody steps in? Jess can’t take it anymore, and we hash out some new deals: Infermedica raises $30 million; Wellster gets a fresh $20 million; Casana the smart toilet seat maker raises $30 million; Babylon buys DaytoDay Health and Higi; Atlas Health raises $40 million. -Matthew Holt
Matthew Holt, how are we not talking about one of the single greatest health tech health crises of our time?
What could that possibly be?
How many more beloved TV characters does Peloton have to give a heart attack too before somebody steps in? I can’t take anymore.
I think the SEC is about step in. Is that for the heart attacks or is that for all the stock sales by the CEO?
Causing a real heart attack but for a whole different group of people. It’s January 26th episode of Health Tech Deals.
Who is going to get to the end of the alphabet first? Covid-19 or Lyra Health? Jess and I talk about a Series F, some big healthtech deals, and more: Wheel gets $150 million; Topography Health gets $21.6 million; Lyra gets $235 million; Big Health gets $75 million.
Joining Matthew Holt (@boltyboy) on #THCBGang at 1pm PT 4pm ET Thursday for an hour of topical and sometime combative conversation on what’s happening in health care and beyond will be: Queen of all employer benefits Jennifer Benz (@Jenbenz); fierce patient activist Casey Quinlan (@MightyCasey); Suntra Modern Recovery CEO JL Neptune (@JeanLucNeptune); and, making a rare but welcome appearance, digital health guru Fard Johnmar (@fardj).
Video will be live (and then preserved) below. If you’d rather listen to the episode, the audio is available from Friday as a weekly podcast available on our iTunes & Spotify channels.
Summus Global is company with a very interesting model that gives a glimpse about the future of virtual care. It delivers online specialty care and much more to employers. You might think that means it is in the second opinion space, or in the care navigation space. And you’d be right, but not completely right. Julian Flannery the CEO tells me that it’s much more than that and has greater ambitions too. I took really deep dive into Summus with conversation with Julian and a thorough demo of the service from Dennis Purcell the COO–Matthew Holt
In this episode of Health Tech Deals, Jess’s productivity this weekend was brought to a show-stopping halt thanks to some Microsoft updates. Does adding unnecessary clicks and creating useless toolbars mean that Microsoft is finally ready for healthcare IT? Jess and I talk about this and some more deals in health tech: TigerConnect gets $300 million, Verana Health gets $150 million, Waymark gets $45 million, Formel Skin gets $30 million Euros, and RCM acquires competitor Cloudmed for $4.1 billion.
Like the new intro? We sure do! In this episode of Health Tech Deals, Jess and I talk about the latest health tech deals and fundraising efforts: DexCare raises $50 million; Avaneer Health raises $50 million; Deepscribe raises $30 million; Little Otters gets $22 million; Ianacare gets $12 million.
On #THCBGang I hosted the double trouble of vaunted futurists Ian Morrison (@seccurve) & Jeff Goldsmith, and medical historian Mike Magee (@drmikemagee) for an hour of conversation and banter about the health care system, the world in politics, and whether “Don’t Look Up” is a spoof or a documentary. Really good stuff, especially from Jeff on whether Medicare pays enough to keep hospitals alive. (Spoiler alter–he doesn’t think so!)
