DRIVEN BY THE DESIRE TO RESHAPE HEALTHCARE.
HealthPoint Plus is a company bound by the desire to reshape healthcare for the modern world. We strive to create innovative, convenient, and simple options for those seeking healthcare services in a world of rising premiums and changing markets.
CEO / CO-FOUNDER
Bob, as a seasoned and highly skilled entrepreneur, has a proven track record of successful multiple company startups, from early-stage to existing large-cap companies that needed a visionary and leader that would drive his hand-picked executive teams to scale up internationally into public company equity exchanges (NYSE, NASDAQ, OTC:BB) reaching more than $500 million in market cap valuation. In earlier roles as a CFO and then migrating into multiple CEO leadership roles, his vision and passion to return shareholders multiples of their original investments attracted some of the most well-known private equity firms and Investment Banks in the U.S, U.K. & Japan. Focused now on the $3 trillion U.S. Healthcare vertical, building on his experience with Wang Laboratories, he today innovates new technology deployment into the broken healthcare market. Help is on the way!
VICE PRESIDENT OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
Jude Augusta has a strong background in healthcare and revenue-cycle-management, having provided online payments for some 80 major hospital-network portals. Jude is extremely passionate about making healthcare affordable, transparent, and available anywhere. Before joining HealthPoint Plus, Jude was pioneering medical price-transparency both in the form of Consumer Driven Healthcare forums as well as price transparency tools.
Having grown up in a financially-modest family of ten, Jude was no stranger to struggle. With great guidance and support, Jude was inspired to earn a degree in Political Science, a Juris Doctorate (MA BAR, non-practicing), and an MBA. Jude brings many self-insured plan-providers, employer organizations & groups, as well as industry knowledge to the team. In downtime, Jude is down to earth, enjoys his family York-Beach, Maine RV on summer weekends, cruises on his Harley, sugaring his maple trees, his post + beam house in the woods, and the simple life.
VICE PRESIDENT OF SALES AND MARKETING
Kanti’s passion is breaking the status quo in our broken healthcare by infusing consumerism–by transforming patients into consumers. Most recently, as a pioneering VP of Sales and Marketing for 4 years at MyMedicalShopper, a leading healthcare shopping platform, Kanti grew sales by building a vast network of national and regional TPAs and benefit brokers for both self-funded and fully insured plans.
Previously, as CEO, President, and VP of Worldwide Sales at seven startups, including as CEO of a public company, Kanti has grown sales worldwide by delivering transformative benefits to clients by introducing innovative products. Kanti led one of the startups from $0 to $30 million in sales, grew its worldwide sales organization to 200 and led the company to its highly successful IPO.
