Kate Ryder, Maven Clinic, on revolutionizing women's and family health

In this episode of The Pulse Podcast, we interview Kate Ryder, Founder & CEO at Maven Clinic, the largest telemedicine provider for family health and women, who control 80% of healthcare decisions in a $3.5 trillion healthcare industry. Besides the market dollar potential, Maven Clinic addresses critical gaps in maternity care. The U.S. maternal mortality rate has steadily increased since 2000, while declining in other countries, and its national C-section rate is 20% higher than what the WHO recommends. Today, more than a third of women and nearly half of women with children take a break from their careers, primarily because of the pull of family. Maven Clinic connects workers with OB-GYNs, nutritionists, lactation consultants, and other specialists via video chat or messaging to empower women to advocate for themselves in a broken system. With Maven Clinic, employers and health plans can see improved maternal outcomes, lower costs, and attract and retain more parents in the workforce. Maven Clinic has raised $90M as of its Series C closed February 2020, and its backers include Spring Mountain Capital, Sequoia Capital, Oak HC/FT, Female Founders Fund, Anne Wojcicki, Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman and Mindy Kaling. Maven Clinic was named among the world’s top 50 most innovative companies in 2020 by Fast Company, and has more than tripled the number of companies it serves in 2019 alone.

Dr. Melynda Barnes, Ro, on why we should all be bullish about telemedicine

In this episode of The Pulse Podcast, Lora interviews Dr. Melynda Barnes, Senior Vice President of Medical Affairs at Ro.
