S3 Ep34: Why Women Distrust the Healthcare System—featuring Carolyn Witte

50% of women distrust the healthcare system in the US. Yet women make up 51% of the population and control 80% of the healthcare dollars.

 

So, what does it look like to build trust with women in a healthcare setting?


Carolyn Witte is Cofounder and CEO of Tia, the modern medical home for women. Carolyn’s team is dedicated to treating women holistically rather than by body part or life stage.


Tia's Whole Woman, Whole Life care model fuses gynecology, primary care, mental health and evidence-based wellness services to treat women comprehensively.

 

On this episode of HLTH Matters, Carolyn joins hosts Dr. Jessica Shepherd, Dr. Gautam Gulati and Dr. Jordan Shlain to discuss how Tia was created out of her frustration as a patient and describe the company’s evolution from the Google for women’s health to care delivery platform.

 

Carolyn explains how point solutions exacerbate the fragmentation of healthcare for women and what Tia is doing to serve the whole woman, addressing her physical, mental and reproductive health.


Listen in to understand how Tia builds trust by listening to what real women want and learn what Carolyn’s team does to make women feel seen, heard and cared for.
