NEW YORK, Jan. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ContextMedia:Health, the leader in health information services at the point of care, announced today that Patrick Flavin joined as Director of Industry Strategy to support the firm's rapid partnership growth with the world's leading life sciences companies. In 2015, ContextMedia:Health worked with over 100 Rx-brands across 50 leading manufacturers. Revenue from these clients has increased more than 200% YOY as a result of the industry-leading outcomes that ContextMedia:Health drives through its patient marketing solutions.
Flavin brings 20 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry. He helped to build several life sciences companies in the Chicago area, including MediChem Life Sciences and Advanced Life Sciences, both of which he helped to take public on NASDAQ while serving as chief legal executive. Most recently, Flavin served as Executive Director at MATTER, a Chicago healthcare technology incubator. While there, he focused on building partnerships with over 40 leading partners from life sciences, technology and government to support MATTER's mission of uniting the healthcare community in Chicago.
"During my experience with MATTER, I was fortunate to observe the dynamic growth of ContextMedia:Health," said Flavin. "I was drawn to the passion of a team that has made the company a leader in commercial strategy development. ContextMedia:Health's compelling technology offers a tremendous solution for life sciences partners, at a time when the industry is seeking effective tools to improve patient experience and adherence to needed therapies. I am excited to join ContextMedia:Health in expanding this opportunity with my colleagues in the life sciences industry."
"We're in a transformative period for our business. The scale of ContextMedia:Health, driven by our growing number of digital solutions and demand from the nation's leading health systems, provides a revolutionary opportunity for our life sciences partners," said Ashik Desai, EVP of Business Growth and Analytics at ContextMedia:Health. "These partners are increasingly adopting our solutions as they recognize the ability to drive patient starts and adherence with unprecedented success. I'm excited to have Patrick on our team, as his expertise will allow us to collaborate within the life sciences industry to ensure the ongoing enhancement of our solutions and alignment with our partners."
The addition of Flavin to ContextMedia:Health's team is only one of the firm's recent high-profile hires from the healthcare industry. In late 2015, ContextMedia:Health added Lori Flynn, former SVP at Everyday Health, and Loretta Lurie, who brings decades of senior-level advertising experience to ContextMedia:Health following tenures at PHD and OMD Worldwide.
ContextMedia:Health is the leading provider of digital solutions at the point of care in the United States. The company impacts 377 million visits a year, across over 25,000 physician practices, and partners with 76 leading digital content publishers to deliver curated patient education to waiting rooms and exam rooms across the country.
ContextMedia:Health has been educating patients at the point of care since 2006, and partners with over 100 health brands across the top global pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers to deliver custom marketing solutions across its digital networks. Most recently, ContextMedia:Health launched two new products - Patient Mobile Connect and the Digital Exam Room Wallboard - that guarantee patients access to relevant health information during the resolution moments of their treatment.
