Glen Tullman envisions a world in which health care isn't broken and patients get the treatment they need at a cost they can afford. For years, the serial entrepreneur from Chicago has built and invested in startups tackling problematic pieces of the puzzle. Now, Tullman aims to make healthcare cheaper and better, full stop.
Last year, he and a group of reformist VCs launched Silicon Valley-based Transcarent. The big idea: Put consumers first. Give them the information they need to make well-informed decisions about their health care. Thus armed, they'll be able to find the highest quality care at the best price--and get better outcomes. Think of it as Travelocity for all your health needs.
Sounds straightforward, right? Now all Tullman needs to do is bring transparency to a system that, by design, is anything but clear.
