MedVentive Inc. appointed Nancy Brown as chief growth officer.
Brown joined the Waltham, Mass.-based healthcare information technology provider from electronic medical records firm Athenahealth Inc. (NSDQ:ATHN) of neighboring Watertown, Mass.
Her new role includes heading MedVentive’s sales, marketing and business development as the company reconfigures its products to new U.S. healthcare legislation.
"[Brown] is uniquely positioned to help us further our leadership position in working with health plans and provider organizations as they address the new market imperative of launching new performance-based incentive payments programs while also realizing measurable increases in quality levels," CEO Nancy Ham said in prepared remarks.
Before her six-year stint at Athenahealth, Brown was a vice president at HIT firm McKesson Corp.; prior to that she worked for Abaton.com, which she co-founded and McKesson acquired.
