Fast-Growing Healthcare Startup Apervita Announces New VP of Talent
CHICAGO, Jan. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Apervita, Inc. today announced it has named Liz Vellojin as VP of Talent, a new position at the healthcare cloud platform company.
Vellojin brings over 13 years of experience in strategic recruiting leadership roles for incubated and pre-IPO product-based technology companies. She was previously the Head of Talent Strategy at Vivid Seats, the largest independent online ticket marketplace. Prior to that, Vellojin led efforts to scale Outcome Health (formerly ContextMedia Health) from 100 to 600 people in 2 years.
"We are in a phase of unprecedented growth at Apervita and we needed a leader who fully embodies that growth mindset," said Apervita president Ken Jakobsen. "Liz is a self-described 'high-growth enthusiast.' She knows how to build a people-first culture that can rapidly scale."
Healthcare enterprises are increasingly looking to cloud platforms to speed up their time to value and remove cost. Apervita is enabling that transformation. In 2018 the company grew annual recurring revenue over 1,000% and went from 24 to over 2,000 healthcare enterprises on the platform.
"Talent and culture are at the core of successful businesses," Vellojin said. "My vision is to build a Human Enablement Department that puts people first, catapulting Apervita toward achieving its mission of transforming the healthcare industry."
Vellojin believes in a values-driven recruiting process, which she says is particularly important in healthcare.
"There are a lot of great product companies out there, but you rarely find such an opportunity to create real human impact," she said. "The Apervita platform improves the lives of millions of patients every day while removing massive cost. That is something I'm proud to be a part of and excited to have the opportunity to help grow."
Apervita, Inc. is the first healthcare cloud platform that allows providers, payers and the health enterprises that support them to easily build and share applications that decrease cost, improve patient and clinician experience, and improve outcomes. With Apervita, health enterprises can collaborate freely and securely within and outside of their organizations, streamlining and standardizing measures reporting and delivering insights at the point of care with ePathways.
Apervita is used by more than 1,000 hospitals, including Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and The University of Michigan.
