Ben Albert

CEO & Co-Founder

What is your why?

I launched Upfront after I spent years as a caregiver for my grandfather and personally experienced the negative impacts of gaps in care. My work here is a direct reflection of my mission to transform the patient experience and proactively guide every patient to the care they need.

Ben Albert is the CEO and co-founder at Upfront. An established entrepreneur, Ben has spent more than 25 years building and leading healthcare organizations that disrupt the industry status quo to successfully activate patients, while improving clinical, financial, and operational outcomes for providers.

Prior to launching Upfront, he was the founder and CEO of Care Team Connect, a leading care management platform for providers. The company was acquired by The Advisory Board Company in 2013, where Ben led Population Health. He went on to serve as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence and Operating Partner within the Strategic Investments Division of Cambia Health Solutions, advising portfolio companies and evaluating new investment opportunities on the group’s behalf.

Additionally, Ben held various executive-level positions at PatientKeeper, Inc. and Data Harbor, Inc., before both companies were acquired.

Ben holds an MBA in Entrepreneurship from the University of Illinois Chicago, and a bachelor’s degree from Western Michigan University. He lives in Evanston, IL with his wife, two daughters, and two dogs. When not working, Ben can be found outside thinking about work.
