Sean Duffy - Omada Health
Sean Duffy was in the MD/MBA program at Harvard when he left to start Omada Health, a digital health startup tackling chronic diseases like diabetes, obesity, and behavioral health. He leveraged his background in design-thinking from IDEO and technology from Google to build one of the most reputable startups in healthcare. We discuss how Omada has successfully sold to self-insured employers, embraced regulatory changes, estimated actuarial risk for value-based pricing, and applied AI to their data. Sean also talks about what's next for Omada, and what scale looks like for the company. Omada Health is the largest CDC-recognized provider of the National Diabetes Prevention Program, was named a 2016 Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum, and one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in 2017.
