A Mission to Reduce Health Care Costs in America by 50%
Philip Kurtz, CEO, CareATC
According to Philip Kurtz, our health care system is backward—caring for people when they become sick, instead of preventing illness in the first place. He and his colleagues at CareATC are on a mission to turn our system around and drive the cost of care down at the same time.
Philip believes better information leads to better outcomes. It’s why he is passionate about leading a company dedicated to using data and artificial intelligence to create better health outcomes for at-risk populations. Philip explains how his group not only provides on-site and near-site clinics to employers, but is also able to identify employees who are at risk for having a health crisis or developing a chronic condition. He also explains tactics for engaging at-risk employees in creating a healthier, preventive lifestyle.
