Paul Hoffman, a seasoned digital health entrepreneur and operating executive, is the Founder/CEO of inTandem Health. inTandem Health is humanizing patient care with modern peer-to-peer mentor support for patients and family caregivers.
Paul pioneered the consumer-centric billing movement in healthcare through the launch of HealthCom, the first company to harness the power of the Internet to combine hospital and physician patient billing into one experience for consumers. HealthCom was used by 35 million consumers and based on a more empathetic patient engagement system Paul created at RUSH Medical Center. The product evolved into healthcare’s first cloud-based financial engagement platform for hospitals, used by Cedars-Sinai, Stanford, UCSF, Sutter, Novant, Advocate and acquired by McKesson.
The success of PatientCompass—which was adopted by more than 200 top healthcare systems and became the fastest growing digital platform for paying medical bills led to HealthCom clients consulting with the AHA/HFMA to create national standards for a new level of patient financial engagement in the U.S.
Paul also created Passport Health's first Patient Engagement product portfolio/business unit and co-created one of healthcare's first price shopping tools for consumers, used by Cleveland Clinic. Passport was acquired by Experian and PatientSimple became the financial engagement engine for Cerner's HealtheLife Patient Portal.
Driven by personal experience and a desire to transform the way consumers experience healthcare, Paul's perspective has helped him become a creative force within the industry launching new products, growing and operating innovative, category-creating businesses, and leading business development. His inventions have been used by millions of consumers while driving healthier bottom lines for 1,000 Hospitals.
In addition to his work in healthcare, Paul produced and filmed "WooLife" with the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless to raise awareness for homelessness. The film was released by Emerging Pictures on Netflix and is in the Baseball Hall of Fame Archives.
