NEW YORK, Jan. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AbleTo, Inc., the leading provider of innovative behavioral telehealth programs proven to improve patient outcomes, increase access, and lower healthcare costs, announced today that JC Muyl joined the company as Senior Vice President of Operations. Mr. Muyl most recently served as Executive Vice President at Medivo, where he was responsible for operations.
"JC is a veteran of health care IT companies who is going help AbleTo accelerate growth and reach greater numbers of people in need," said AbleTo CEO Rob Rebak. "I admire JC for his willingness to join emerging health companies and help take them to the next level. I have no doubt he will do that here at AbleTo as well."
Senior Health Care IT and Operations Professional
Prior to serving at Medivo, Mr. Muyl served in senior IT and operational leadership roles at C3i Inc. and American Express. In past positions, Mr. Muyl has rapidly built several global service lines, including a Clinical Business Unit, a Data Business Unit, and a Managed Services division. Mr. Muyl will be responsible for planning and executing all of the platform and delivery functions at AbleTo.
"I believe that the best method to improve the health care system is to grow organizations like AbleTo. That's why I'm here," said Mr. Muyl. "In my career in health care IT, I've seen many companies come and go. Some, like C3i, grow quite large and a company like Merck takes interest. I envision AbleTo as a company that is poised for significant growth in the dynamic behavioral health space."
Mr. Muyl earned a MS in Computer Sciences and a BA in Marketing from SKEMA Business School in France. He will be based in the company's New York City headquarters.
Executive Hires and Technology Investments Signal Innovation in Behavioral Health
The addition of Mr. Muyl is the most recent among a series of executive hires to support AbleTo's mission to innovate in behavioral health. Since the hiring of Rob Rebak as Chief Executive Officer in June, AbleTo has made the following additions to the management team:
- Dorothy Gemmell, Chief Commercial Officer
- Clifford Farren, Chief Financial Officer
- Jonathan Stout, VP Strategy
- Jason Goodhand, VP Product
- Corinne Gavlinski, VP Account Management
AbleTo is also developing technology to bring high-quality care to more people in need. In November, AbleTo announced the launch of a Care Coordination Platform to enable customers and providers to better connect patients to evidence-based treatment and improve overall care. Aetna is among the first health plans using the platform.
"Taken together, our recent hires and technology investments demonstrate that AbleTo is breaking from the crowd in efforts to disrupt behavioral health. No other provider can offer the same standard of care that AbleTo is known for – and now we can scale by using technology to solve the access problem for so many in need," said Mr. Rebak.
