DEC Presents – Joe Anstine: Building a Healthcare Software Business

Please join us Thursday, June 16, 2016 at 10:00 a.m.

Program: A common mistake that many entrepreneurs make is thinking their original idea is the winning idea that will make them millions. The reality is that the most successful businesses spend grueling hours on the research phase, defining the customers’ requirements, determining the market and refining the winning idea. 

Joe Anstine, founder of PriorAuthNow is a perfect example of an entrepreneur who is refining his winning idea. He has made 60+ iterations of his product in under a year. He has also changed the name of the company three times in the pursuit of finding the best product name. All of this work laid the foundation so he could finally nail his product, the pitch and also land repeatable sales.

Joe will be telling his story in an interview style process with the assistance of REV1 who have been an involved mentor in his business development. In this open Q&A, you’ll gain insights from Joe on his experience:

* Quickly iterating to product / market fit

* Overcoming being the “startup” when selling

* Getting good at selling

* Leveraging local resources and funding

PriorAuthNow’s powerful, secure software works with an EHR system and connects directly with all insurance carriers, making it the fastest, most economical way to submit, monitor and complete prior authorizations. PriorAuthNow eliminates the need for lengthy phone calls, going to many different payer sites, and filling out the many different authorization forms – saving providers and their staff countless administrative hours.
