Keith Figlioli Shares Lessons Learned at Premier, Eclipsys, and Playing Cricket in India


Keith Figlioli found himself on a senior management track, helping to run some of healthcare’s more impactful companies including Premier, the purchasing network of close to 200 hospitals.

His operational roles at Premier led him across the globe. He also embarked on long, winding road shows to stage an IPO and sat in on major decisions around transformative M&A.

The seemingly never-ending trail led Figlioli to decide he needed to shift to a less transitory career.

Oddly enough, he’s found that in venture capital.

Now Figlioli is a partner at Long River Ventures, a smaller venture firm with an extensive, successful history of investing in healthcare IT companies.

In this Breaking Health Podcast, Figlioli shares the lessons learned on his lengthy path to Long River and explains what’s next for the growing venture capital firm.
