Movements take time, especially when they’re taking place in an industry as large and as broken as the U.S. healthcare system.

Hint Health is focused on supporting the direct primary care movement. They’re on a mission to help dismantle the insurance fee-for-service infrastructure and replace it with a model that provides as many people as possible with access to high-quality and affordable healthcare. Hint Health supports doctors that don’t accept insurance through the technology and tools they need to be successful. 

In this episode of The Irresistible Factor, Zak shares with us his journey that led him to the healthcare industry and ultimately co-founding Hint Health. He speaks about the approach to entrepreneurship which has allowed his business to thrive, and what has kept him motivated to persevere despite the many hurdles that come with a goal as gigantic as changing our broken healthcare system.  

“Direct primary care is really like a Toyota. It’s a fantastic value. It’s solid. It’s awesome. I think that’s where, if you can get this for $50 a month, or $60 a month, or $70 a month, that’s pretty affordable. Especially if you’re saving more than that elsewhere, because you’re now reorganizing the rest of the plan around this type of care model. To me, the scale comes from affordability and quality.
