#25 eConsults and coping with the year 2020 with Gil Addo of RubiconMD
Gil Addo is the co-founder and CEO of RubiconMD, the leading eConsults platform connecting primary care to specialists around the country.
I’ve known Gil for years and have always felt a kinship of sorts with him as I feel like we came from the same era of health tech startups, seeing him over and over again at similar early-stage digital health events around the country. Our conversation dives into his business quite a bit and explores factors in the changing healthcare landscape like value-based care, new primary care delivery models, and systemic racism in society and our industry.
