In episode 13 of ReBootHealth, I speak with Dave Kuraguntla. Dave is the founder and CEO of Alio, a non-invasive, remote patient monitoring start-up focused on chronic conditions. Telehealth and remote patient monitoring have been hot areas in venture over the last two years and we talk about Alio’s impact in this area. Dave talks about the importance of finding a tribe for founders, focusing on solving problems rather than building technology, the role incentives play in helping (or hindering) a market, and the role serendipity can play with a founder’s journey. Dave is a classical “scratch the itch” type of founder who saw a problem and needed to solve it. While it sounds easy, Dave reminds us of many valuable lessons when building ventures in the health care market. If you’re a founder take note of his 4 “P’s”, it’s a good reminder of what it takes to get product adoption for health care innovation. As always, I hope you find the episode valuable.
While medicine has advanced over the last several decades, with new treatments and diagnostic tools, the delivery of health care for the average patient remains as fragmented and inefficient as it was over two decades ago.
