Houston, TX, December 12, 2018 – Vivante Health, the digestive health and disease experts and creators of GIThrive, the first-ever comprehensive digital program for gut health and disease, is proud to announce Josh Holmes has joined the company as Senior Vice President of Health Plan and Provider Markets, following a stellar career in health plan and provider-facing services.
As a go-to-market leader with more than 20 years of experience in the healthcare industry, Holmes has a proven track record of developing and collaborating with a high-performance sales culture, generating quality client partnerships and driving growth.
“Digestive diseases and other chronic conditions are a growing and costly problem,” said Holmes. “The time is now to address these invisible and often neglected conditions. The Vivante Health team is a group of experienced leaders who are mission focused, and the ability to address and improve quality of life for consumers is very important to me.”
Holmes is a serial business development leader in the healthcare industry, having worked in leadership roles with companies such as Thomson Reuters, Healthcare Insight, MedAvant/ProxyMed, WebMD, Leverage Health and NaviNet. Most recently, he was Senior Vice President of Business Development with RowdMap (acquired by Cotiviti) where he played a critical role in the marked expansion and growth of the company’s client base across the entire US, including rural and underserved communities. He worked in group, individual, Medicare and Medicaid products managed by customers ranging from large publicly traded insurers to regional networks and provider-owned payers. Holmes specializes in payer and provider perspectives on the transition to value-based care and reducing unnecessary costs in the healthcare system.
