Bob Badal is a veteran of the healthcare industry and an expert in kidney care. Bob began his career in healthcare right out of college, working in health plan network development and hospital administration. He continued his education with an MBA from the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business and joined ECG Management Consultants after graduating. While there, Bob led managed care, physician governance, and hospital/provider join venture projects.
Bob then joined DaVita, where he spent 13 years in a variety of roles. He was directly responsible for all health plan and provider network contracting for both DaVita’s Kidney Care and Medical Group divisions, a total portfolio of more than $2B in revenue, and also served as President of Latin America Operations. Bob left DaVita in 2016 to co-found Treatment Technologies & Insights (TTI), a healthcare technology company focused on transforming cancer care and other chronic diseases through patient-reported outcomes and predictive analytics.
Bob was introduced to Strive at the concept phase and was immediately drawn to the opportunity of dramatically improving outcomes for chronic kidney disease and end state renal disease patients. As co-founder & Chief Revenue Officer, Bob identifies and works with health systems, provider groups, and payors to establish the partnerships that drive value-based care in kidney care programs nationwide.
Bob is a self-reported adrenaline junky. When he’s not working, he loves to travel with and experience life’s great adventures with his wife and son.
