  • #11 - Guilherme Azevedo: Transforming Health Insurance and Primary Care with 'Alice'
    Mar 20 2024

    Join us on “The Gustavo Franco Podcast” for an exciting conversation with Guilherme [Gui] Azevedo, a co-founder of Alice. Alice is a revolutionary payvider healthcare system, providing both health insurance and care. Their focus on primary care and digital medicine makes them unique and opens up new avenues for better health outcomes and cost efficient care.

    Gui shares the history of the company, takes us through a comprehensive landscape of health insurance in Brazil, and explains exactly how Alice works. As always, we have an interesting discussion on how this model can be used to improve population health.
