Acquisitions, Funding, Business, and Stock


Motivo Health, which has developed an online marketplace to help aspiring mental health therapists obtain licensure, raises $14 million in Series A funding. The round was led by Cox Enterprises, which has also invested in Enlace Health (value-based care software), Rimidi (chronic care management), and Rock Health (digital health fund and accelerator).


Thirty Madison reportedly lays off 10% of its corporate staff. The company offers consumers online prescriptions for hair loss, women’s sexual healthcare, migraines, GI conditions, allergies, and skin conditions. The New York City-based company, which has raised $210 million since launching five years ago, laid off 24 employees in May after acquiring women’s online sexual healthcare provider Nurx earlier this year.

Government and Politics

An audit finds that Florida Parishes Human Services Authority failed to adhere to public bid law requirements for a $1.2 million contract for a new EHR purchased last year. Specifically, FPHSA, which provides mental health services for five parishes in Louisiana, failed to advertise project bids in the requisite publications. FPHSA’s executive director attributed the error to a lack of experience with software purchasing processes. It began implementing the unnamed system earlier this summer.

Research and Innovation

A study out of the Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute finds that Medicare claims submitted by non-practicing providers within radiology practices increased 16.3% between 2017 and 2019. Study author Richard Duszak, Jr., MD says further analysis is needed to determine the impact of the increase, though he does note that radiologists have increasingly been handing off certain types of examinations to NPPs.
