Prior to joining BioIQ, he served in leadership positions with Kaviva, a digital health engagement technology company, U.S. Preventive Medicine and Vault Coaching. He also serves as an adjunct professor in the School of Nursing for Jacksonville University.
"In today's marketplace, the experience consumers have with healthcare providers is vital not only to member satisfaction but also to engagement and ultimately health improvement," said Justin Bellante, CEO of BioIQ. "This is an important role for our organization, and we are delighted to have someone with Ashley's experience leading our member experience initiatives."
Reynolds has participated in several industry-leading committees, including: CDC/NIH Diabetes Health Sense Task Force, Digital Health Council for the Society for Behavioral Medicine, Population Health Alliance (PHA) engagement committee, and Technology Engagement subcommittee.
