During years of family health struggles, Ari Tulla began to see major flaws in the US healthcare system. He realized it was easy to find information about specific diseases and illnesses online, but there wasn’t a way for consumers to find the right doctor who treats these illnesses. His frustration with the system and belief that he could build a solution prompted Tulla to co-found BetterDoctor in 2011 with his friend and colleague Tapio Tolvanen.
BetterDoctor makes the US health market simpler and more transparent by opening up doctor quality metrics, procedure volumes and prices. Since the inception BetterDoctor, apps have helped 20 million people find the right doctor. Next BetterDoctor focuses on powering the market with their best doctor data. BetterDoctor’s API is currently been used by over 100 companies.
Prior to BetterDoctor, Ari led Nokia’s game and application businesses where he was responsible for creation of thousands of mobile apps with over 100 million downloads. Ari has over a decade of experience on creating new delightful consumer products and experiences.
