Serial Entrepreneurs: Lessons Learned from Jeff Margolis - see you at the HealthTech Conference!
Written by Anne DeGheest // 06 September 2015 //

HealthTech Conference is back on October 27-28, 2015 for its 4th annual installmentand this year's theme, "Moving the Needle in HealthTech", will highlight how industry leaders have implemented disruptive solutions from emerging companies and validated their impact.

One of our most requested panels, Lessons Learned from Serial Entrepreneurs, hosts successful founders that share their different approaches to building businesses, developing partners, raising funding and executing on their visions.  The deep panel discussion about theDo's and Don'ts of entrepreneurship has been value-added to many of our attendees. 

This year, we have two entrepreneurs in theUnicorn Club of the $1 Billion exit range ... who are now leading new HealthTech companies:   

  • Jeff Margolis, Chairman and CEO, Welltok was the founder and CEO of Trizetto, the first industry vertical SaaS enterprise solution, and originated the concept of Integrated Healthcare Management. During his tenure as Chairman and CEO, Jeff led TriZetto through a successful IPO and $1.4B private equity buyout.
  • Glen Tullman, Chairman and CEO, Livongo Health has founded or co-founded a number of ventures and was the CEO of Enterprise Systems and Allscripts that he both took public. 


"I am officially going on the record that the healthcare system does not get the credit it deserves for Information Technology advancements it has made over the years. My theory is that this below average perception has been perpetuated because most of the maddeningly, complex enterprise systems have been implemented to serve administrative and clinical functions, and were not designed to create excellent experiences for consumers. Therefore, the technology consumers have been exposed to in healthcare has largely been in the form of adjunct portals duct-taped to existing systems, or an over-the-shoulder view of a physician entering data in their patient chart. That's a challenge we are addressing at Welltok with the introduction of the industry's first enterprise-level consumer health platform, but that's a topic for another time.

What I'll be discussing with Glen Tullman (Allscripts and Livongo) on the HealthTech panel "Serial Entrepreneurs: Secrets to Success" is how we've been successful to date and why we are not done. Health IT is far more complex than most people acknowledge or can comprehend. There needs to be a respect for the systems in place, but we also need to move more quickly as an industry and continue to innovate. This is why Glen and I are still hacking away at challenges in healthcare that can be solved with technology, and not resting on our laurels.

While this may seem daunting to an outsider - hence the earlier framing - this is what drives me to be a serial entrepreneur. There is tremendous opportunity in health technology, and personally, I believe our biggest successes are yet to come. "
