Another typical post. For new readers, this blog usually is all health care business, policy, and research and one staple is me making fun of the ridiculous names people put on their start-up health care companies. Wellth, which uses behavioral economics to encourage better treatment plan aherence, has raised $10 million in new financing. Now normally I would find a pun or something that I at least think is clever about that name, but right now I am multi-tasking listening to the daily coronavirus briefing, and that is just depressing.
Yikes, another non CV item. Change Healthcare, which offers a variety of health care analytics and administrative services, is buying an e-prescribing business for $213 million and selling one analytics unit to Kaufmann Hall.
