The problem we solve: Women face significant challenges when it comes to accessing affordable quality care that serves unique women’s health needs, even more so in marginalized communities.
About our solution: We’re empowering women to take control of their health through education and lowering the barrier to appropriate and convenient digital health services. Our commitment to making healthcare affordable means that many of our services cost than $25. Affordable healthcare not only helps alleviate the short-term financial burden associated with healthcare but also the long-term financial burden associated with untreated diseases.Progress to date:
Our progress includes:
- expanding our service offering to include digital health solutions across six care categories: family planning, breast health, sexual health, acute care, behavioral health, and dermatology
- growing our network of best-in-class online health partners, including Everlywell, Color Genomics, 7Cups, Lemonaid Health, MyLabBox, SimpleHealth, and more
- accepting initial funding from Cedars-Sinai Hospital and Techstars to cover the cost of our beta platform
- working with 3 large payors to outline partnership roadmap
- working with channel partners and self-insured employers to plan MVP launch and initial pilots
