Tech Tonics: From Apples to Apple to Better, Geoff Clapp’s Road to Healthcare Technology
Today’s Tech Tonics Podcast features Geoff Clapp, CEO of Better, Inc. From the apple growing community of central Massachusetts to the Apple Computer community of Silicon Valley, Geoff has been a lifelong high technology fan. He started out as a teenager selling homemade computer games from his bedroom and has been at the forefront of numerous firsts in the technology world, often before the world was ready for his ideas.
Today Geoff is CEO of Better, Inc. a company focused on matching people with professional Personal Health Assistants to help coordinate their care, coaches them on healthy lifestyles, and connect them with expert medical advice. Once again, Geoff is out ahead of the critics who believe that consumers won’t pay for healthcare services. But Geoff has been right in the face of naysayers before and has made a successful career out of integrating technology and healthcare in new ways. Good thing Geoff is an avid hockey player, as he wears a helmet, knows how to take a few blows to the head, and still puts points on the board.
Hope you enjoy the show!
