According to Goodroot CFO Jim Harper, the best way to transform the current U.S. healthcare system is to replace its connective tissue.

“It’s going to be a long slog and it’s got to be done one system at a time,” explains Harper, who uses the word “system” while referring to the individual points of connection that knit together healthcare’s patchwork of payers and providers.

For Harper, connection points are where waste gathers within the larger system – and where companies often add unnecessary complexity in order to extract more dollars.

“Because there is so much money flying through the systems there are a lot of organizations that have become involved here and they are greedy,” comments Harper, whose shares his opinion of the healthcare system as a preface to explaining the mission behind Goodroot.

Not exactly a business incubator, and not a private equity firm, Goodroot prefers to be dubbed a “community” of businesses dedicated to improving the current state of healthcare delivery.

Harper once more tells us: It's a mission that can only be achieved "one system at a time." - Jack Sweeney
