#9 The Mint.com for health with Aaron Patzer from Vital (and founder of Mint.com)
Aaron Patzer is founder and CEO of Vital, AI-powered software for hospital emergency rooms and patients. As an entrepreneur, Aaron has had success at a number of companies, most notably the ground-breaking Mint.com – which he founded in 2006 and eventually sold to Intuit. The success of Mint.com shook up the financial services industry and paved the way for other innovators, including Plaid, the platform that enables applications to connect with users’ bank accounts (Visa acquired Plaid for $5.3 billion in 2020). Last year, Aaron launched Vital to bring a similar consumer-focused mindset to emergency rooms and hospitals.
However, as you’ll hear in this fascinating conversation between Aaron and Niko Skievaski, creating “a Mint.com for the healthcare industry” is not an easy task. There are significant differences and obstacles to be addressed. But these two innovators are confident that transformation is coming. Listen on…Here are some of the leading topics.
