When I last sat down for a chat with Ari Tulla, it was a year ago in the BetterDoctor office in San Francisco. We talked about his thoughts on use of the word "pilot," tips on proper strategy execution, and even The Mix Tape of Happiness. A lot has changed since then. For starters, BetterDoctor was acquired by Quest Analytics last June and Ari was named CEO of the resulting company. How was the merger? What's life like now? I'm curious myself to know these things.
In addition, when we did a prep call with Ari last week, he mentioned interest in discussing:
- If the future is indeed here and it is in fact not evenly distributed, what's holding it back in healthcare?
- Ari's prediction for the state of the automobile
- Ari's predictions for healthcare vs. travel industry by 2029
- What is the impact of a smartphone for society overall?
Quest Analytics is a leading provider of network access and adequacy services to health plans and insurance regulatory agencies. With its acquisition of BetterDoctor, the combined companies aim to provide the first comprehensive platform that enables health plans to optimize member experiences while complying with federal and state regulations for network adequacy and accuracy.
