FOLX Health provides healthcare to queer and trans Chronosphere employees
In a time when LGBTQ healthcare is constantly being threatened and providers have to find ways to support queer patients, FOLX has stepped in as a leader in LGBTQ healthcare!
In partnership with FOLX Health, the first digital healthcare service provider designed by and for the medical needs of the LBGTQIA+ community, Chronosphere employees can now access end-to-end virtual primary care, gender-affirming care, advocacy, and community.
Folx Health has announced its latest employer partnership with Chronosphere, the only cloud native observability platform that puts engineering organizations back in control by taming rampant data growth and cloud native complexity. Chronosphere’s 250+ employees and their dependents will now have access to FOLX Health’s end-to-end virtual primary care, HRT, PrEP, care navigation, content, and community.
“Since launching in 2020, FOLX Health’s mission has always been to democratize the LGTBQIA+’s community access to equitable healthcare. Over the past year, in addition to a direct-to-consumer offering, we have started partnering directly with employers to reach their workforce. With 50 percent of queer and trans folks not out in the workplace, offering discreet healthcare benefits like ours is more vital than ever,” said Liana Douillet Guzmán, CEO of FOLX Health. “I’m excited to add Chronosphere to our growing list of employers relying on FOLX Health to deliver competent, LGBTQIA+-centric care to their workforce.”
FOLX Health provides expert, affirming healthcare to the queer and trans community through their skillfully trained clinicians, peer-to-peer support groups, expert-led support groups, library of resources, and enterprise solution that offers a supplementary solution to employers to give their employees the unique healthcare they need. Representation is vital for the LBGTQIA+ community in healthcare settings, where more than half of queer and trans people face discrimination while seeking medical care. FOLX Health leads with community at the forefront, taking the wants, needs, and feedback of their community into account and in return giving them the resources they deserve.
“We take diversity, equity, and inclusion seriously at Chronosphere. Beyond building internal employee resource groups, we understand that the onus is on us to provide all employees with the benefits and tools they need to lead their best lives – both personally and professionally,” said Gabriela Serret-Campos, Global Head of People & Talent at Chronosphere. “Including FOLX in our benefit offerings underscores our commitment to all of our employees’ well being, both physically and mentally. We are now providing them with the individualized healthcare they need – on their own terms.”
This news comes on the heels of major milestones for both organizations. In January, Chronosphere raised $115M in venture funding at a $1.6 billion valuation. Earlier this month, FOLX Health was named one of the five companies creating a more equitable healthcare system as part of Fast Company’s annual Most Innovative Companies issue.
