About Our Guest:
For over 25 years Mike has studied the healthcare system from the inside out.
He advanced from a financial role to an executive leadership role at Oxford Health Plans, and then Magellan Health Services. While at Magellan, Mike pioneered the integration of ICORE Healthcare, a company focused on solving specialty pharmacy challenges, and the development of a new medical pharmacy program.
Mike was inspired to create a company that could be built from his years of industry expertise, the result—RemedyOne. He wanted to bring together talented minds—people who, like him, had a passion to succeed and to learn, and who pay attention to the details necessary to make real and lasting change, regardless of how complex the situation.
Most recently, to further the RemedyOne mission, Mike has launched Goodroot, building a team and community of companies committed to dedicating their time and careers to reinventing healthcare one system at a time. That team has created a passionate culture Mike is proud of, and has produced outcomes that have changed thousands of lives for the better by saving over $800M in healthcare costs.
Today, he continues to free and amplify talent to join the Goodroot cause working towards a goal of saving the healthcare system $30 Billion in the next five years.
