Portland, OR (PRWEB) November 07, 2013
The WelVU leadership team stepped onto the national stage last month with a mission to eliminate miscommunication in healthcare through their visual patient engagement platform. The combined team experience tops 100+ years of leadership in health literacy, health IT, and multi-media health education.
Led by founding CEO, Mark Friess, leaders across content, finance, operations, sales, and strategy are in place to meet both national and international demand for patient engagement solutions.
“I’m surrounded by the best management team in the industry,” says Friess. “Their personal passions for the greater good match my own and their functional expertise will position WelVU as a collaborative, responsive, and positive catalyst for change in the patient engagement space. I’m extremely privileged to partner with these colleagues and friends.”
The functional areas represented by the leadership team include the following:
Finance – led by ultra-experienced financial officer, company builder, and problem solver, Kathleen Sego.
Content – led by patient education veteran and passionate health education content and literacy expert, James Ryan.
Operations – led by the hyper-focused organizational leader and multi-media content deployment guru, Dina Stanzione.
Sales – led by patient education services sales leader and information system management executive, John Toth.
Strategy – led by veteran health IT executive and clinical workflow, EHR, and HIE integration aficionado, Terry E. Douglas, Jr.

Together, the WelVU leadership team has built the first patient engagement platform to use medical illustrations, a patient’s personal medical data, and a provider’s verbal conversation to create a multi-media care video. This educational reference video is created on-demand in the exam room, the hospital room, or telemedicine “room” with the patient. Providers can also create and store prepared videos that they or their staff can prescribe to patients, thereby empowering those patients with standardized, customized education while maximizing valuable staff time. Prescribed education becomes a critical reference tool for the patient to view, review, and share the important conversations about their health. Best of all, it requires nothing more than what providers already do today – educate.
Domestically, WelVU has set out to solve some of the largest challenges the US healthcare system faces today – patient compliance, clinical outcomes, health literacy, care coordination gaps, and patient satisfaction. Internationally, given WelVU’s flexible technology, the platform is being used to bring culturally sensitive and native language specific education to patients around the world.
