Echo Portfolio CEO Series: Paul Ketchel from MDsave

Echo Health Ventures invests to build and grow a diverse portfolio of health care technology and services companies. In the Echo Portfolio CEO Series, we’ll feature several entrepreneurs leading health care startups to learn more about their innovative solutions and shared vision for a better health care system.

MDsave, an Echo Health Ventures portfolio company, is the world’s first online health care marketplace, bringing together patients seeking affordable care with providers offering high-quality services at fair prices. MDsave simplifies the billing process through negotiated rates, bundled pricing, and up-front payment.

We sat down with MDsave CEO Paul Ketchel to learn more about the inspiration behind his work and how MDsave is improving health care access, costs and experience for consumers.

“Echo really looks at ‘how do we improve patient experience?’ And that’s been a big driver of MDsave,” said Paul. “Yes, we help patients get a better price and a better value, but at the end of the day what we’re really doing is improving access to health care as a whole.”
