The VentureFizz Podcast: Troy Bannister - Co-Founder & CEO of Particle Health

Episode #279 of The VentureFizz Podcast features Troy Bannister - Co-Founder & CEO of Particle Health.

Building a startup is tough in any industry, but for a healthcare startup, there is a whole different level of complexity. It is a heavily regulated industry that has been slow to change in terms of digital transformation. 

As you’ll hear from Troy, the majority of healthcare records are transmitted via a fax machine. How is that possible in our modern world of technology? But, it is opportunities like this that catch the eye for entrepreneurs like Troy.

Particle Health’s mission is to enable simple and secure access to actionable healthcare data for digital health innovators. It’s user-friendly API platform lets healthcare providers get patient records from over 270 million patients across the United States. The company announced a $25M Series B round of funding back in July led by Canvas Ventures.

In this episode of our podcast, we cover:

  • Some of the biggest challenges around building a startup in a heavily regulated industry like healthcare.
  • Troy’s background story including his time as an EMT and how he got involved in the healthcare industry and joining Startup Health in its early days.
  • All of the details on Particle Health and how they are disrupting the healthcare industry.
  • Advice for recruiting and attracting a world class team.
  • And so much more.
