Building a Comprehensive Women’s Healthcare Startup like Tia

Quick Summary- Tia, the modern medical home for women, offers women’s health services. Their journey is quite interesting in relation to how the 2 female entrepreneurs built and secured a hefty $100 million funding round to scale its in-person and virtual care. Today’s blog will tell you how the founders of Tia recognized the need for comprehensive women’s healthcare and built a one-stop-shop platform for female healthcare. Also, how can you build a successful healthcare startup or build women wellness app with SyS Creations even if you have a niche?

With an aim to serve 100,000 women by 2023 Tia, a New York-based healthcare company focused on women, secured a hefty $100 million largest series B investment ever led by Lone Pine Capital.

The company was founded in 2017 by Felicity Yost Tia’s chief product and operating officer, and CEO Carolynn Witte.

Since its launch in 2017, Tia women health has served women from the 18-80 age group. At the same time focusing on providing comprehensive women healthcare to women of color, because of the well-documented disparities in health outcomes, and care.

Tia the “modern medical home for women” and how it is changing the women’s health services in the healthcare industry

Currently, in New York City and Los Angeles, Tia offers virtual care at Phoenix, shortly to be on board in San Francisco. The aim of Tia’s women’s health services as said by Witte is to “build out more in-person clinics in existing and new markets while expanding its service lines to care for women throughout their entire lives, from puberty to menopause”.

With a new standard in patient care, women make up a large proportion of annual healthcare spend i.e $3.6 trillion. Still, the U.S healthcare system has widely garbled women’s healthcare by body part or their life stages.

So, how is Tia bringing the necessary change?

Tia advances the paradigm for women’s healthcare by providing both digital and in-person holistic care, treating women throughout their lives and not only in a particular reproductive stage or illness.

The care model of Tia combines primary, mental and gynecologic attention into one smooth, coordinated and integrated experience with additional evidence-based wellness treatments (for example acupuncture) to provide women a single stop for all their requirements in the health fields.

Tia the modern medical home for women

Even though Tia is a virtual-first, with more than 60% of its health services delivered online, the providers also allow the women to get in-person care when they need it.

Tia is also beaming for partnerships with other healthcare systems to allow its patients to choose and access specialty care that Tia does not render like cardiology, obstetrical care, and many more. Solving the problem of specialist, in-patient, and outpatient care.

Partnerships in the health system are extended to include Tia Insurance, allowing even more women to utilize Tia’s networked services, Witte added.

Tia Services

How do we help you offer women health services the way Tia is providing or to build women wellness app?

Recently, we were approached by an Ohio-based women’s shelter organization. As the whole country went into the abyss of Covid-19 the healthcare facilities fell scarce.

And they wanted to build a women-centric healthcare app. A virtual women’s clinic facility for all the women living in the shelter, and under their emergency shelters, transitional housing, family & domestic violence shelter.

The aim was to provide them with primary and comprehensive women’s healthcare.

So, after careful assessment of their requirements and needs, we help them build an application on our telemedicine white-label platform.

At the same time, the SyS Creations team of clean code developers, designers, and integration experts made sure all the proposed requirements were met.

Using our API and integration expert we provided them a full-fledged app where they can order medications and other health products.

Our compliance experts made sure the app was HIPAA and ADA compliant while following the HL7s FHIR integration standards.

At SyS Creations, we believe that women are the very basis for the existence of humanity. And that who creates us needs to be taken care of with utmost competence.

Supporting the spirit of women empowerment, and women’s health. Most of the services we provide are budget-friendly.
