Salvo Health is the first truly comprehensive digital clinic. We’re a team united by a mission to make specialty healthcare more accessible and more affordable for the 60 million Americans with chronic gut conditions.
Jeff Glueck has wanted to launch a data-driven healthcare company for years, one that would advance medical practice for chronic conditions. As the former CEO of Foursquare, he knows a thing or two about replacing what’s antiquated and reinventing an industry.

“Our Salvo Health team brings healthcare and consumer-design experience from companies like AbleTo, FlatIron Health, Squarespace, IDEO, Quartet Health, and 23andMe.”
These are the actions that we uphold with ourselves and each other.
We go beyond what’s conventional or transactional, and define success by healthful outcomes - lives and people - not just company growth or profit.
We listen to our community so that we can break down barriers & stigmas and create safe and simple experiences. We don’t avoid uncomfortable conversations to preserve a superficial harmony; we embrace conversations that get to the root of an issue and help us gain perspective.
We acknowledge the beauty and opportunity in the way our bodies work and create solutions for multidimensional people and nonlinear health journeys. Instead of focusing on point solutions or quick fixes, we insist on seeing how all the pieces fit together to address root causes.
We believe in caring for ourselves as “whole selves” so that we can care for others. Where there is a trade off between a culture of overworking versus one of humanity, we choose the latter. Our best work happens when we create the right environment for people to do their best work.
We arm everyone with confidence in their ability to create impact, with clear expectations and accountability. Where there is a trade off between control versus trust, we default to the latter, emphasizing context and actionable goals over prescriptive instructions.
We aim to understand not only how and what to move forward but why– through rigorous testing and iteration. We base our decisions on scientific evidence and data. Where little research exists, we create engines for learning and sharing to advance the science.
"The team is smart, empathetic, and committed to learning from our members to continuously improve their care. Many of our members have experienced mistreatment or abandonment by the healthcare system, so providing a restorative experience is key.”
"Coming from a start-up that was recently acquired, it was exciting to join a company in its early stages again. It’s all-hands on deck to build a first-of-its-kind virtual health clinic, and establish a new level of digital healthcare, which means the environment has a distinct and exhilarating energy. I’m grateful to operate alongside a tight team of dedicated and passionate people."
"We just work differently- it’s not like any other early stage startup I’ve been at before. There’s this unspoken understanding that everything we deliver meets a certain threshold of quality that minimizes tech debt and maximizes scaling potential. I came to Salvo Health to create solutions that can contribute to improved and happier lives, and I’m doing just that on a daily basis."
“The work we do at Salvo Health is thoughtful and intentional. We’re fast-paced, but not in a rush. As a result, everyone is able to really listen to and learn from one another in a meaningful way. It’s a rare for a start-up foster that kind of collaboration across teams.”
