Welcome to Thursday.
Who’s doing all the heavy lifting in health tech? Women are pulling out the big guns and flexing more than ever before in digital healthcare. Sherrell recently featured Sally Poblete, CEO of Wellthie. She’s one of several “badass women in health tech” leading us into the future of insurance.
The company, founded in 2013, prides itself on providing ease and advanced solutions for insurers and brokers. With Poblete’s seasoned career as a healthcare exec, she’s brought in millions of venture capital with her steadily growing team. It all started with her desire to remove the frustration associated with finding coverage.
