Does Teladoc’s Stock Drop Matter? Jamey Edwards on Achieving Health Moonshots in the Face of Rocky Public Markets



This week’s episode of StartUp Health NOW is a conversation with Jamey Edwards, Chief Operating Officer at StartUp Health. Jamey has been working in the telemedicine space for more than a decade, and his last company, Cloudbreak, went public via SPAC last year. So when we saw the headlines that Teladoc’s stock dropped 40% – alongside other dips in the telemedicine public market – we called him up for a dose of perspective. In this conversation with host Logan Plaster, Edwards breaks down the news from Wall Street and gives startups some health moonshot wisdom. Bottom line: stay focused on the mission because improving global health is a marathon, not a sprint.

The Tipping Point for Telemedicine, with Amwell’s Dr. Roy Schoenberg



Our guest this week is telemedicine pioneer Roy Schoenberg, MD, MPH, the Co-CEO and President of Amwell. COVID was an absolute game changer for telemedicine adoption, and Amwell was right there to seize the momentum. But before COVID, Dr. Schoenberg and his team labored for 14 years trying to bring the dream of telemedicine to reality. They learned a lot along the way, and we’ll hear some of those lessons in this conversation between Roy and Unity Stoakes, StartUp Health’s President and Co-founder. The chat was held on stage at the StartUp Health Festival, which occurred at ViVE in Miami Beach in March 2022. You’ll hear Dr. Schoenberg’s philosophy on health automation – why that shouldn’t be a dirty word – and a bit on why they acquired Conversa Health, a StartUp Health portfolio company that made its name building healthcare chatbots. Dr. Schoenberg also delivers some hard-won wisdom to today’s healthcare entrepreneurs, like the fact that persistence is the name of the game. If you want to change health, he says, you have to be ready for the long fight.

Transcarent’s Glen Tullman on Building the Next Healthcare Ecosystem



This week is another StartUp Health Festival @ ViVE special, as we bring you a main stage conversation between Glen Tullman, CEO of Transcarent, and Unity Stoakes, the President and Co-founder of StartUp Health.

In the conversation, held in front of a live audience, Tullman pulls back the curtain on what he’s building at Transcarent, and how it builds on the success he saw at Livongo. Tullman explains why healthcare is entering the era of “Big Customer” not “Big Tech” and why, if we want to make healthcare efficient and affordable, we have to completely rethink the process, not just make the current system work a little more smoothly.

Stick around for the end of the interview, where Tullman gives some practical wisdom to entrepreneurs and innovators who are early in the journey.

With MouthWatch, Brant Herman Is Blazing a New Trail for Tele-Dentistry



Join us in Miami Beach next week for the StartUp Health Festival @ ViVE 2022 to meet the MouthWatch team and dozens of other Health Transformers: startuphealth.com/festival

Thanks to COVID-19, the telemedicine industry saw an unprecedented boom over the last two years. Millions of people who never thought they’d see their doctor over a video call were introduced to the idea and discovered it was often pretty convenient. This phenomenon has gotten plenty of air time. But what about tele-dentistry? You may have to see your dentist in person if you want to get a cleaning done, but it turns out there’s a whole world of virtual dental care that has exploded in the last two years, following the same trend line as telehealth.

At the forefront of this movement is our guest today, Brant Herman, the CEO and Co-founder of MouthWatch. This company – which StartUp Health backed in 2015 – saw the need years ago and has designed an intraoral camera that can help visualize what’s going on in the mouth and send that information to a remote specialist. They’ve also built Teledent, a leading platform for managing teledentistry practices. For this work they’ve won a host of awards, and for two years in a row have been on Inc’s list of fastest growing private companies.

We’ll get into all of that in the interview, hear about the company’s journey, and talk about the critical role of oral health in holistic health.

Join us in Miami Beach from March 6-9 for the StartUp Health Festival @ ViVE 2022 to meet Brant and dozens of other Health Transformers: startuphealth.com/festival
