A niche healthcare navigator for patients with multiple diseases-healthcare blog
Author: JESSICA DaMASSA, WTF Health
Directly from incognito and Launch today! Lyn Health aims to provide specific and personalized care for patients with three or more chronic diseases. It aims to compete with healthcare navigation advocates such as Accolade, Transcarent and Included Health INSTEAD, such as digital health chronic disease management platforms and other healthcare navigation advocates such as Teladoc’s Livongo, Vida Health, One Drop, Omada Health, etc.
As employers and health plans become more and more tired of single-point solutions for chronic disease care-many of these companies have “goed out” in recent years-will niche market navigators really stand out? Is effective care for the multi-ill patient population so specialized that it is worth adding specific, targeted solutions to the more general navigator, primary care provider, or chronic disease care platform solutions that employers or plans may already have service?
Lyn Health CEO Rick Abbott stopped to introduce us to this seed fund startup, which has raised $10 million (backed by Summer VC) and has attracted Some unnamed health plans and Fortune 500 employer clients. Rick explained the market needs that Lyn Health aims to meet, and how he used the knowledge he learned about the cost of multiple chronic care from his past life in Premera Blue Cross into something he believed would help employers reduce expenditures and improve The way to manage the daily patient experience of multiple chronic diseases. Lyn Health aims to provide care with its own doctors and social workers, and to connect with patients in digital and physical forms. Moreover, for this business model, we have encountered a big question: Is there a risk?
It’s great to see this startup on the day of the official launch!
