Vibrent Health Taps New Chief Medical Informatics Officer

Health technology company Vibrent Health announced this week that James C. Wade, MD, has joined the company as Chief Medical Informatics Officer (CMIO).

In the role, Wade will provide direction in clinical, scientific, behavioral and lifestyle research as well as standardization of the measurement and evaluation framework for Vibrent’s digital health programs. He will also act as a liaison to National Institutes of Health, National Cancer Institute, Clinical and Translational Science Awards Program, National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program, and other governmental agencies and health organizations on policy issues effecting clinical research, patient care and wellness.

Wade joins Vibrent Health as the 8-year-old company enters into the next phase of its growth with the spring 2018 launch of NIH’s Precision Medicine Initiative, the largest-ever health study in the nation’s history, which is powered by Vibrent Health’s Learning Health System (LHS) precision medicine technology platform.

“The clinical and scientific expertise that Dr. Wade brings to Vibrent Health will have tremendous value to our growing team of research and health data experts. He brings a perspective as a medical practitioner that will enormously benefit the design of our digital programs,” said Praduman Jain, founder and CEO of Vibrent Health. “Dr. Wade offers real-world experience treating patients and encouraging their involvement in their care, which combined with his background as a scientist and researcher will greatly enhance our ability to engage participants for the long-term as well as ensure quality and meticulousness in our work.”
