Personal health management app developer Healthspek has announced it has named Kasey Anderson as director of business development.
Previously, Anderson was the executive director of the Nashville Academy of Medicine. She was the founding director of the academy's Project Access Nashville, which has donated more than $27 million worth of health care to Nashville's uninsured. She also served in the admissions department at Harding Academy. She is the secretary of the Nashville Metropolitan Action Commission and president-elect of the Tennessee Society of Association Executives.
"Our subscriber numbers and industry partnerships continue to increase, and Kasey is the right person to lead the business development effort," Bruce LeFew, Healthspeak co-founder, said in a release. "With her background in both the health care and educational fields, she brings extensive knowledge and industry that will help Healthspek continue to grow."
Developers of the Nashville-based personal health management app Healthspek have been invited to pitch their product at AARP's national expo in May.
The expo, to be held in Boston, will showcase 10 startups in the "50 and over" health technology market, with access to consumers, venture capitalists and other investors. Healthspek is a free iPad tool that safely tracks, collects and disseminates personal health care information.
"Today's health care environment is putting the power back in the hands of the people, and we see that as very positive," Randy Farr, Healthspek CEO, said in a release. "Consumers now have an opportunity to manage their own care, working with their doctors to streamline the flow of information. The benefits in cost reduction, efficiency, disease prevention and peace of mind are significant, and we believe we're just scratching the surface of how this technology could revolutionize American health care."
