While women make up half the population, you may have noticed that women's health is treated like a niche category.
Today on the podcast to talk about innovation (or the historical lackthereof) in women's health is Amanda French, co-founder and CEO of Emme, a healthcare technology company that wants to bring birth control out of the 1950s.
Emme recently launched the first Smart Case for birth control (and accompanying app) to help pill users better manage their health and never miss a pill again.
Amanda talks about why she decided to create the first Smart Case for birth control, how it works, and the problems it solves. She discusses why there is such a lack of innovation and funding in the women’s health category, and how male-centric design perpetuates failures in products for women's reproductive health. She also talks about the historical "women's health information gap" and how FemTech, and investments in women-focused healthcare solutions, can address it.
