Ryan Foland with Nick Desai: How Delivery Apps Are Changing The Way We Live
Today’s guest is Nick Desai, Co-Founder & CEO of Heal (https://heal.com), an app for on-demand healthcare (think Uber for doctor house calls). An entrepreneurial expert, Nick led four venture funded start-ups over the last 18 years. But for Nick, Heal is more than a company – it's a mission to fix the broken $3 trillion health care system.
In two years, Heal has driven more than $5.9 million in healthcare savings costs, reduced unnecessary prescription antibiotic usage by more than 50 percent, raised $52 million in funding, and reduced non-emergency trips to the ER/urgent care by 62 percent for its patients and partners. Additionally, Heal has delivered 16,000 patient house call visits and plans to grow that number exponentially by the end of 2017. In this show, we discuss how apps that deliver services to our door are changing the way we live. As a UCI Alumni, Nick’s school spirit still shines through. Tune in, and “Get Notified”!
