Wal­greens part­ners with a pri­ma­ry care tech start­up to pro­vide new ways to pay for med­ical care

Pearl Health, a health tech start­up that helps pri­ma­ry care providers get paid for the qual­i­ty of care they pro­vide, just inked a part­ner­ship with Wal­greens.

The part­ner­ship aims to help the phar­ma­cy gi­ant ex­pand its reach be­yond where it has pri­ma­ry care of­fices and pitch it­self to health sys­tems as a way to get paid to help keep pa­tients health­i­er. That’ll hap­pen by iden­ti­fy­ing peo­ple who might need more at­ten­tion with New York-based Pearl’s soft­ware, then con­nect­ing them to Wal­greens’ ser­vices to help them track med­ica­tions, or get care at home through Wal­greens’ re­cent Care­Cen­trix ac­qui­si­tion.
