Today on Health in 2 Point 00, Jess is in Berlin for the Bayer G4A Signing Day where they’re announcing which startups are going to get deals and Glen Tullman is doing a fireside chat with Eugene Borukhovich. In Episode 97, Jess and Matthew talk about Walmart and fertility. Fertility benefits startup Progyny files for IPO and Matthew’s blown away by this relatively new company with David Schlanger which improves the quality of IVF services for people at large companies and have improved the rate of live births while decreasing costs for fertility treatments. Another company—Halle Tecco’s Natalist—raises $5M for their fertility test startup which send care boxes to help women get pregnant. Finally, Jess has a conspiracy theory, noticing that Walmart is sneaking into all aspects of health tech. Walmart is expanding Grand Rounds, partnering with Doctor On Demand and HealthSCOPE to offer telehealth to their employees, Sam’s Club is offering $1 telehealth visits to members, and they just announced a partnership with Embold Health to incentivize its employees in the southeast to go to better doctors. Finally, Matthew’s going to be at Society for Participatory Medicine next week in Boston—see you all there.
