Meeting Women’s Unmet Health Needs with Femtech

November 09, 2020

For far too long, investments in digital health solutions for women have been underfunded. According to Rock Health, just 3% of the US digital health deals since 2011 have focused on women’s health and well-being. But that’s all changing. Increased interest and investment in Femtech – digital health solutions for women - is opening the door to address previously unmet needs. In this episode of the Business Group on Health podcast, we speak with Sari Kaganoff about the Femtech landscape, including areas “ripe for innovation,” as well as how the digital health sector as a whole can become more inclusive.
