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.

Echo Health Ventures portfolio company Livongo empowers people with chronic conditions to live better and healthier lives. Livongo is the pioneer in Applied Health Signals, a new category of technologies and capabilities that combines data science, behavior enablement and clinical impact to silence the noise of health care and reinvent the experience for people with chronic conditions.

Their team of data scientists aggregate and interpret substantial amounts of health data and information to create actionable, personalized, and timely insights and nudges delivered to our members to help them stay healthier. This approach is leading to better clinical and financial outcomes while creating a better experience for people with chronic conditions.

We sat down with Livongo’s Former CEO and now Executive Chairman Glen Tullman to learn how Livongo is fulfilling their mission to help people live better and healthier lives.

“What we’re really doing is making it easier for people to stay healthy using a combination of technology and actually connecting people to people,” said Glen. “Every day, we’re providing technology that allows us to understand what’s happening with that member, with their health status, and be there when they need us—and only when they need us.”

Glen explained that a partnership with Echo Health Ventures made sense in two ways. First, Echo understand the process of building a business. More importantly, the two companies share a vision for how we can actually improve and transform health care.
