032: Open Market Healthcare in Action – Gary Frazier
On this episode, Gary Frazier joins us to talk about his mission to revolutionize healthcare using free market principles and empowering patients with choice. Gary is the Founder and CEO of OM Healthcare whose mission it is to create consumer-driven healthcare, where patients and doctors are free of the bonds of a third party system to create transparency, efficiency, fair pricing and optimal experience. Review this Podcast | Subscribe to our Newsletter Using his 18 years of business development experience and almost 12 years in health leadership roles, Gary began to unpack the current healthcare system and found the biggest constraint in America’s healthcare ecosystem was that free market commerce between providers (doctors, etc.) and patients is being hindered by insurance companies acting as middlemen. He created Open Market (“OM”) Healthcare as the first direct-to-consumer platform for purchasing healthcare services that leverages direct-pay fee-for-service provider networks and delivers them via an app-based e-commerce platform to self-funded employers (and their employees) as an alternative to traditional insurance-based health plans. Throughout the episode Gary and Nathan dive into how free market economics could help improve the current US health system. How would that work? Can it work in both the private and public market places? Will this lead to further innovation? Find out all this and more on this episode!
