Zak Holdsworth came all the way from a New Zealand farm to help reform the US healthcare system. At Hint Health he’s enabling a direct care model that frees (mostly) primary care practices from the overheads, hassles and misaligned incentives of third-party reimbursement. In his view, health insurance should pay for the occasional, unpredictable and expensive occurrences, not be the default payment method for predictable care.
Hint handles about a half billion dollars of payments now and is developing new tools to enable innovative approaches by health plans and employers.
