Jordan Epstein: New players in healthcare may not get to make a difference (JPM Week Exclusive Video) - Paubox

  • 10,000 attendees and over 450 private & public companies attend JPM week.
  • Digital health startup Redox threw a packed social mixer in SoMa on Tuesday.
  • Stroll Health CEO Jordan Epstein is concerned not much is going to happen this year in digital health.

The 36th Annual JP Morgan Healthcare Conference went down this week in our backyard of San Francisco.

Otherwise known as JPM Week, it’s an opportune time to get out and network amongst our peers in the Health Care industry.

Jordan Epstein: Biggest Concern for Digital Health in 2018

On Tuesday we attended the Redox social mixer at Uno Dos Tacos in the SoMa district.

While there, I got a chance to catchup with Stroll Health CEO Jordan Epstein.

Here’s the transcript from our conversation:

Jordan Epstein: My biggest concern is that in the past couple of years, there’s been this big move towards value-based care and then a lot of talk about trying to make a difference in terms of the actual outcomes for patients.

Basically that hasn’t actually translated into business. So a lot of these health systems, a lot of these investors, they’re just not seeing the returns. They’re not seeing the actual impact on the bottom line.

My fear is there’s gonna be a lot of still the talk, but then you know fewer and fewer of these new new players getting a chance in healthcare, really being able to make a difference. Honestly, you know with the move for the government and where the government is going, where the reimbursements are going, there’s too much uncertainty.

You know my fear is just not much is going to happen this year.

Hoala Greevy: Yeah. Thank you!
