On April 14, Vantiq appointed Ryan Vega, M.D. its first Chief Health Officer. He will start in early May. In a statement, the company said that he “brings a deep mix of clinical, technical, and business experience as Vantiq seeks to drive collaboration and change in the global health and wellness space.”
“I’m excited to join Vantiq and am inspired by the possibilities this technology can create. This platform will enable the personalization of healthcare, both the delivery and experience, in ways we have not fully envisioned or realized – regardless of whether that care is delivered in the walls of a traditional hospital or not,” said Dr. Vega.
“I believe the future of health and wellness will be shaped by our ability to intelligently leverage emerging technologies to solve some of the most pressing challenges facing healthcare. As Vantiq’s Chief Health Officer, I plan on seeing this vision become reality,” he added.
Vantiq “provides the leading low-code platform for building and deploying distributed, real-time, event-driven smart solutions.”
At Vantiq, Dr. Vega will join a team of executives that includes Jim Rice, Vice President of North America; Dr. Leslie Latterman, Senior Medical Advisor; and Hardik Dave, Vice President of Strategic Alliance. All of those on the team have extensively used technology to provide healthcare systems, patients, and providers with more positive results.
Rice commented on Dr. Vega’s appointment saying, “We couldn’t be more excited to have Dr. Vega join Vantiq to help enable the next generation of personalized healthcare.”
Dr. Vega most recently served as the Chief Innovation Officer & Executive Director of the Office of Healthcare Innovation and Learning at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
He received a Doctor of Medicine from the Louisiana State University Health Science Center and a Masters of Science in Health Administration at Virginia Commonwealth University.
“This is a very exciting time in the healthcare industry as new technologies like AI, IoT, and robotics are transforming the way we can monitor and care for patients. Vantiq can help address challenges around personalization and complexity in healthcare by providing a low-code and agile platform to enable innovation and take full advantage of these technologies,” said Marty Sprinzen, CEO of Vantiq.
“With the addition of Dr. Ryan Vega we believe we have the team to deliver on this vision and make a real impact on the health and wellness of our society,” he added.
Dr. Vega will join Vantiq at the HIMSS Global Health Conference in Chicago from April 17-21 to present smart healthcare solutions.
