Takeaway: Favorite venture fund, Jumpstart Foundry, will be in Hedgeye studios to talk about changes to supervision, technology reimbursement and more

We continue our efforts to "learn out loud" and apply recent, often radical federal health policy to the investment process. We have highlighted a number of important changes that benefit telehealth companies like TDOC and AMWL, laboratory and device manufacturers like ILMN, GH and ISRG and alternative sites of care like SGRY. A lot of the action, however, is going to be in alternative investing as new companies are formed to take advantage of certain opportunities and existing growth companies sieze the day.

Now is a good time to sit down with our friends at Jumpstart Foundry and talk about changes to supervision rules that further expand the opportunities for telehealth both within a health system and across the care continuum. We will also explore changes to Medicare reimbursement that encourage adoption of new technologies and care patterns. Finally we will look at how alternative sites of care from ambulatory surgery centers to Walmart will affect health care delivery. All of these things will have an impact on new and emerging companies in Jumpstart's portfolio and pipeline.

Yes, some of it may go in reverse as a result of the election. We will talk about that too.

Please join me, Jumpstart Chief Operating Officer, Brian Dougherty and Managing Director Eller Mallchok for a discussion about how current federal policy will be applied to alternative investments and what opportunity and challenges lie ahead.
