BOSTON, September 18, 2019 — Medisafe, the leading medication management platform with over five million users worldwide, today announced the appointments of Sean Markey as Chief Business Officer and Jennifer Butler as Chief Marketing Officer to position the company for continued growth in 2019 and 2020. Markey will be focused on expanding Medisafe’s partnerships with medication management across the healthcare ecosystem and Butler will help position Medisafe’s digital therapeutics platform’s capabilities in driving improvements through behaviorally informed and therapeutic designed customized programs.
“As medication management continues to become more challenging for patients, it is imperative to Medisafe that we are supporting patients by redefining what it means to manage medication through the entire patient journey, from the first prescription, through improving adherence and outcomes,” said Omri Shor, founder & CEO, Medisafe. “Sean and Jen are accomplished leaders and will work across Medisafe to increase our Patient Journey Management value proposition and drive growth with our healthcare partners, while identifying ways we can continue to enhance our patient experience.”
The appointments come on the heels of the company’s recently announced strategic collaboration with the Lash Group, which solidified Medisafe’s capabilities of holistically supporting patients in their management of complex medication regimens, digitally connected to nurses for real-time care intervention needs. Additionally, Medisafe was also named as a finalist by EyeForPharma in the Most Valuable Service or Digital Therapy category based off current work and results with its global pharma partners.

Before joining Medisafe, he led business development at healthcare software company Phreesia (recently IPOed), focusing on pharmaceutical, over the counter, diagnostics and medical device industries. Prior to that, Markey led sales for medical device and diagnostics for WebMD where he was responsible for all online marketing solutions. He spent the first half of his career working for large pharmaceuticals companies including Johnson & Johnson, Novartis and Pfizer.
