Al and Dave met freshman year at the University of Michigan, went to medical school and reunited in Portland to found and lead disruptive health companies. In 2006 they launched ZOOM+Care, which became the leading on-demand health platform caring for over 500,000 people in 36 locations in Portland and Seattle. It's been an extraordinary journey full of success and failures, growth and learning. This site shares their journey with those passionate about founding and building innovative health organizations.

Welcome to the Story of Zoom.

ZOOM+Care is a cherished healthcare company based in Portland, Oregon that cares for 400,000 individuals and in 2017 delivered nearly 250,000 patient visits.

 

But the road has been long and winding.

 

We founded ZOOM+Care 12 years ago.

 

ZOOM+Care was founded and exists to take on and solve one of the greatest social and economic challenges of our times: how to deliver better access to quality healthcare at a price we can afford.

The Al and Dave Way (ADW) is a handbook for founding and building innovative organizations.

 

 

Dear Founders, Builders, Leaders,

 

Welcome to the Al and Dave Way (ADW). When we decided some twenty years ago to work at the intersection of medicine, innovation and business, we were physicians who knew nothing about business. Out of necessity we sought to develop a cogent and powerful way to found and lead companies with breakthrough concepts. These ways have been built from the timeless wisdom of others and from our own personal struggles to become effective founders and leaders. Our ways are continually evolving and we expect that they will be refined over time.

 

We've organized ADW into five chapters of multiple sections. We'll post sections throughout 2018. If you sign up below, we'll notify you when we post new sections.

 

We hope this is helpful. Let us know your thoughts.

 

Dave and Albert
