Labdoor + Lyft
Unlike prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs, vitamins and supplements are not regulated by the FDA—and therefore boast claims about their contents that may be unvalidated. That’s where Labdoor comes in. After independently buying supplements from retail stores and testing them in their chemistry lab, Labdoor publishes the results and expert reviews for free—informing consumers so they can make informed choices before forking over their hard-earned cash. To date, the team has raised $10.8M to take on the supplement industry, and is backed by seed investors Mark Cuban, Rock Health, and Y Combinator.
Lyft is driving patients to see their doctors—and saving insurers big money along the way. Blue Cross Blue Shield Association recently partnered with Lyft to reduce costs and improve outcomes for commercially insured enrollees who lack adequate access to transportation. With Lyft’s many partnerships in healthcare (including El Camino Hospital, Brookdale, SafeRide Health, and Medstar) an Innovation Tour at Lyft will take you on a ride to learn how this transportation company is making a name for itself in healthcare.
Cricket Health + Lantern
Cricket Health wants to transform and improve chronic kidney disease treatment—affecting nearly 20M adults in the United States—by using technology-enabled home care to enhance human connections. Cricket Health, who recently partnered with the American Kidney Fund to enroll new patients, works with payers and providers to deliver value-based kidney care that scales across populations.
In matters of mental health, it takes more than just an app to effectively help people when they need it most. Lantern stands out among the crowd by addressing head-on the gap in the care model, making access to mental health treatment affordable and personal through evidence-based web and mobile programs in cognitive behavioral therapy. The team’s powerful platform is being leveraged extensively by the likes of UPMC.
Doximity + Collective Health
Aside from the iPhone, you’d be hard-pressed to find a piece of technology adopted by clinicians as quickly as Doximity has been. In just three years, their social network has become the most popular network for clinicians across the country, reaching 70% of all US doctors and more than 800K Licensed Medical Professionals—and they’re just getting started. Come learn what’s next on the horizon for this powerhouse.

Augmedix + Clover Health
Augmedix is on a mission to improve the doctor’s office experience by equipping doctors with Google Glass while seeing patients.

You heard about Google Glass 2.0’s recent burst onto the scene—now, see for yourself how Augmedix is harnessing technology to make the routine doctor’s visit more productive and enjoyable, for doctors and patients alike.
Clover Health has joined the ranks as one of digital health’s latest “unicorns,” with their latest funding round led by Alphabet’s venture arm, Google Ventures. Clover Health serves over 25K Medicare Advantage members, applying data science to preventative care in an aim to reinvent the health insurance model. During the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to see how their software is being used to predict problems, identify gaps in care, and subsequently reduce healthcare costs.
Grand Rounds + Stride Health
Grand Rounds is a digital health company that connects patients with local and remote specialty care. The company covers more than 3M lives across the United States and beyond, with the service available in 120 countries. Their people love them, too: Grand Rounds has received recognition from both Glassdoor and Rock Health as one of the best places to work.
Stride Health makes signing up for health insurance easy for the self-employed. Stride’s algorithm uses the information provided by an enrollee to create a health profile that predicts medical costs for the year and recommends a plan best fit for the individual’s situation. In June, cofounder and CEO Noah Lang announced Stride’s latest addition—vision insurance, built for independence and just this month, they announced $23.5M in Series B funding.
