VIRTUAL PANEL on September 22: Getting Patients to Stick With You

As femtech builders, our goal is to launch and scale tech solutions that actually move the needle on patient outcomes. Yet, it’s not as straightforward as it seems… 

We’re asking ourselves, “What tools do my practitioners need to provide personalized care at scale?” “How do I set up my tech stack to track towards patient outcomes?” “Should I buy vs. build?”

Let’s demystify this together! Come join top product leaders from Carrot Fertility, Evvy, and Allara who’re working to improve women’s health and health equity as they share hard-won lessons on how they’ve built solutions that put patients first.
