Houston, TX, December 10, 2018 – Vivante Health, the digestive health and disease experts and creators of the GIThrive all-in-one digital program for gut health and disease, announced today the hiring of Tyson Wegman as Regional Vice President of Commerce, Eastern US. Wegman oversees sales and business development in his region and collaborates with company leaders on business strategy. For Wegman, helping others live a better life is the most satisfying part of the job.
“It’s rewarding to help employers control the rapidly rising prescription and medical spends associated with digestive diseases and helping them reduce employee absenteeism, but what it’s really all about for me is drastically improving quality of life for the individuals we engage,” said Wegman.
Prior to joining Vivante, Wegman held sales and new business development positions at Liberty Medical Supply, Zimmer Spine, United States Medical Supply and RowdMap (acquired by Cotiviti). Over the past 18 years, Wegman has specialized in medical devices, sales management, new business development, marketing and brand building, SaaS healthcare services, and prescription adherence. Wegman had tremendous success in diabetes management, serving high-risk populations through customized medication adherence programs that focused on Medicare and dual-eligible special needs plans. “And through it all we were able to boost HEDIS scores and Medicare Star Ratings for my clients,” Wegman added.
“I am really pleased that Ty has joined us,” said Dr. Kimon Angelides, Vivante Health President and CEO. “He has a wealth of experience in healthcare, is the type of go-getter we like to have around, and really is able to focus on what our customers need and like, delivering service second to none. He’s a great addition to our team.”
With offices in Houston, Nashville, and Athens, Greece, Vivante Health’s global team of experts in digestive disease, microbiome science, clinical care, medicine and technology came together to build the GIThrive platform. It is the first comprehensive program that brings together, in one virtual healthcare hub, all the necessary tools, including instant, on-demand support from a human care team, to effectively manage chronic digestive symptoms.
