Cureatr, the nation’s fastest growing mobile care coordination solution for healthcare providers, today announced it has appointed Vik Shah as its new Executive Vice President of Client Services and Operations as the company looks to support its rapid growth and scale its mobile communication platform. Mr. Shah’s appointment comes on the heels of Cureatr’s recent Series A funding raise of $5.7 million that was co-led by Cardinal Partners and Milestone Venture Partners with JMI Services, LLC and the Partnership Fund for New York City participating.

“We are thrilled to welcome Vik to our team at such an exciting time for Cureatr. He will play a critical role in helping bolster client support and operations as we execute on our aggressive growth plan,” said Joseph Mayer, M.D., Cureatr’s CEO and co-founder. “Vik brings the kind of expertise needed to help manage the rapid adoption we are experiencing of our mobile provider communication and workflow navigation platform.”

Launched in 2011 Cureatr’s customers include the leading academic medical institutions and care delivery organizations in the nation such as Davita HealthCare Partners (NYSE: DVA), The Mount Sinai Medical Center, The New York Eye & Ear Infirmary, and Albany Medical Center. Cureatr’s enterprise solution is available as either a native Android and iPhone app, in addition to a desktop version. Cureatr creates clinical-vertically tailored clinical workflows by building its platform around specific use-cases with input from clinical champions, IT leaders and end-users directed toward process redesign. This enables a rapid, meaningful impact on clinical workflow, improving efficiency and quality and delivering a quick, measurable return on investment.

“Cureatr stands to disrupt how care providers communicate as they look to better coordinate complex care for chronically ill patients and I feel privileged to join such a strong team,” said Mr. Shah. “It’s vital to have the industry’s very best client support capabilities and overall operations given Cureatr’s current pace of innovation and growth and I look forward to applying my experience to achieve this.”

Prior to joining Cureatr, Mr. Shah held various operational and product executive positions at Medidata Solutions, which provides pharmaceutical, biotechnology and clinical research companies with cloud-based solutions for planning and managing clinical trials. Most recently, Mr. Shah held the title of Senior Vice President of Applications and Platform for Medidata where he oversaw all R&D for product management, engineering and software quality.
