The Digest for Health Transformers & Changemakers

When your mission is a moonshot, gratitude is a big part of what sustains you. After all, we can’t transform health without embracing a humble dependence on one another. The job is just too big. It’s going to take an army of like-minded Health Transformers and changemakers to reimagine the future of health.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, this week we pause to say Thank You to the people who have partnered with us to answer that call. We say Thank You to the people who have decided that the status quo isn’t good enough when it comes to healthcare and who have given voice to those who need it most. Together we will achieve the impossible.

From the StartUp Health family to yours, have a Happy Thanksgiving.

What if you could see what your dentist sees without having to leave your home? You’d probably be more inclined to keep that teeth cleaning appointment that you’ve cancelled twice now. This is precisely the theory MouthWatch founder Brant Herman formulated seven years ago when he observed a patient wig out after viewing the plaque buildup behind her teeth with the help of an intraoral camera. Read how Herman’s suite of digital tools is enabling practices to reach more patients—often those who are most in need of care—with increased efficiency and at a lower cost.
