Disruption in Healthcare

About Michael Gorton:

A quintessential entrepreneur, mentor, and company builder, Michael leads the Recuro Health team which includes several leaders from Teladoc, where he served as the founding CEO and pioneered an industry-changing health care model that created a new efficiency paradigm in healthcare by delivering physicians to patients nationwide in under 12 minutes for $35.

Gorton ran Teladoc as CEO and Chairman for the first seven years of operations. Under his term, the company grew from a concept to one of the most recognized innovations in healthcare, with nearly two million patient members nationwide. Under the Teladoc model, physicians made more and patients paid less. Teladoc was studied and advocated by most of the major healthcare think tanks and was recently named one of the most innovative companies in healthcare. Teladoc recently entered the NYSE and now has a market cap of over $30B.

Michael’s decades of experience as a strategic visionary, impacting the telecommunications, music and healthcare industries include a leadership role as a founder of Principal Solar where he applied his business expertise, scientific education and training to the renewable energy sector — a strong voice and proponent of solar power.

He has served as a partner of the Texas Acceleration Group (TAG), an entity formed to assist startup companies and participated as a founder of Palo Duro Records. He is also credited as a founder of Internet Global, a company that delivered the first DSL network and one of the first VOIP networks. Prior to this, he worked as a project engineer at Dallas Power & Light dealing with power plants, distribution, transformer management and integration of renewable energy into the grid.

Michael earned a B.S. in engineering from Texas Tech, an M.S. in Physics from the University of Texas at Dallas and a Juris Doctorate from Texas A&M.
