"I started Medbelle mainly to improve the experience of having specialist care, especially after having had a not ideal ACL reconstruction journey myself. I thought that we could reinvent this experience the same way tech companies had already transformed other industries for the better - and that already was a big mission. Over time, we've learned that we can also build technology and correct incentives to focus care on value, so improving outcomes and reducing costs. There are few things that are more rewarding to work on."
