Big moves from unsatisfied stakeholders

We’ve seen big moves lately from major stakeholders rightly unsatisfied with the healthcare status quo—from hospital-run drug companies to employer consortiums.

And our own Virta, a full-stack company supplanting traditional diabetes care, just released one-year data from its ongoing clinical trial showing 60% of study patients reversed their type 2 diabetes with the average participant losing 12% of their body weight. Read the rest of the findings here.

What touched us this week:
