How Kristen Valdes, b.well Connected Health CEO, Changed Her Pitch to Land Series A

Laurie McGraw speaks with Inspiring Woman Kristen Valdes who shares lessons she has learned in building b.well Connected Health.

Kristen Valdes, b.well Connected Health’s CEO’s, story is a podcast (or made-for-Netflix movie) in its own right: her daughter, Bailey, was born with a significant autoimmune disorder that multiple physicians failed to recognize or diagnose. Seven years into the quest for a diagnosis, Bailey was prescribed a medication that is contraindicated for her condition and ended up nearly dying (in part because one physician’s EMR couldn’t talk to the other’s). Finally, Kristen Valdes herself assembled all of Bailey’s records from 17 different clinicians, paid 5 experts to review them, and arrived at the right diagnosis.
