Andrew MacGill, Vice President of Product at Flume Health, has joined the firm. MacGill has worked at healthcare and employee benefits challenger businesses such as Pager, Rally Health (bought by United Healthcare), Spotlite, and PerkSpot for 15 years in product development and management.
- Platform: MacGill has been tasked with building a world-class platform, infrastructure, and product team for Flume Health, which is undergoing massive growth. In an interview, MacGill remarked, “I’ve joined this team to finally deliver on the promise that healthcare can be fundamentally different and better.”
- Options: Consumers will see more health plan options that can be customized to their particular health requirements and preferences as healthcare continues to advance with a new generation of digital entrepreneurs entering the market. As Flume tries to further disrupt the US healthcare system, MacGill’s mandate is to continue the march toward innovation.
- Benefits: With more than 50 percent of employees receiving benefits from their employers, employers are often tasked with becoming healthcare experts rather than focusing on their core business. Flume is the modern gateway for strategic innovations on benefit plan design and management for both challenger health plans, incumbents, and health systems.
- Healthcare: “Andrew has deep knowledge of both the multi-faceted healthcare infrastructure system and the future of personalized healthcare plans,” said Cedric Kovacs-Johnson, founder and CEO of Flume Health. “We’re pleased to have Andrew on board as we build our vision of innovative consumer experiences, care delivery models, and technologies.”
- Consumers: Healthcare industry disaggregation is a boon for consumers who are able to take advantage of point solutions, but it leads to greater complexity for employers. “Throughout my career, I’ve been fortunate to work with digital health companies striving to change a dysfunctional system. Traditional health and insurance systems have failed to meet growing consumer demand for personalization, creating a big opportunity that challengers can seize,” said Andrew
