Plenty of direct-to-consumer birth control brands are hitting the market today, using pretty packaging, suggestive photography or overly-posed models to sell the product, but Nurx is taking a different approach.The brand is particularly focused on expansion to Southern states, including South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia.Nurx has been around since 2015, originally dubbed by many as the “Uber for birth control.” Today the telemedicine company offers everything from birth control and emergency contraception to home HPV screening kits and PrEp.As the company continues to expand (it’s now in 23 states and the District of Colombia) Nurx decided it was time to rethink the way it communicates with existing and potential customers.“The reality was we didn’t have much of a brand.Our brand didn’t necessarily reflect what we are doing here in terms of being an all-in-one service encompassing really primary healthcare needs, things you would traditionally have had to go to a physical doctor’s office location, followed by a pharmacy, to get,” explained Katelyn Watson, Nurx’s vp of marketing.

A doctor speaking through a telepresence robot in California gave a dying patient and his family devastating medical news, raising questions about when the convenience of telemedicine should be skipped in favor of a face-to-face conversation.According to KTVU, Ernest Quintana was in the intensive care unit of the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fremont, California, when a doctor on a video screen told Quintana that he wasn’t likely to survive.It should have been a human being come in,” Quintana’s granddaughter Annalisia Wilharm told KTVU.“That’s not something you want to ask the loved one of a patient to do in that kind of situation,” Alex John London, a Clara L. West professor of ethics and philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University, told The Verge in response to the KTVU story.“It created a real distance between the family and the clinician, which, instead of the empathy that you want out of this kind of interaction, further depersonalized it.”Michelle Gaskill-Hames, senior vice president and area manager of Kaiser Permanente Greater Southern Alameda County, expressed Kaiser Permanente’s condolences for the family.

Duxlink Health, Florida based multi-specialty practice group with Duxlink Health Technology, the sister technology company, provides its unique integrated solution, Duxlink Tele-Hospital™.The solution focuses on one goal – “High risk Population Health Management to reduce unnecessary hospital readmissions.” The main product, Inter-reality Care™ (both On-site and On-line Care) provides hospital level of care for high risk patients in the post-acute care continuum.The Upcoming Perfect StormDuxlink Health was formed at the inception of Medicare’s official reimbursement of Telemedicine in the US along with the shifting paradigm from fee-for-service to value-based care for cost reduction.Based on National Quality Forum 2017 Report, preventable 30-day readmission costs the US $25-45B annually, 5-30% higher than regular admissions.Recently in October 2018, Medicare just released a BPCI (Bundled Payment for Care Improvement)-Advanced program, extended the 30-day metrics to 90-day readmissions, which is much harder to achieve.For example, the 30-day readmission rate for heart failure is average approximately 20%, the 90-day is over 50% in the US, but can be over 90% in some hospitals.The BPCI-Advanced program has not only elevated the clinical quality threshold, but also is posing  a 20% of upside/incentives or a downside/penalties on the 1,300 hospitals nationwide in the US that already signed the contracts with CMS.This may accelerate estimated 450 hospital closures in the next a few years projected by Morgan Stanley in August 2018.The Key ChallengeThe fundamental problem of hospital readmission is the silo of patient data and care from all the entities, outside of hospital, due to lack of data integration and focused high risk care delivery.
