Proteus Digital Health Expands Commercial Team and Board of Directors to Drive Commercial Growth

REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- Proteus Digital Health Inc. announced today the expansion of the company's executive team and board of directors with the addition of three healthcare leaders to drive its commercial strategy as the company launches its first digital health products. The announcement was made at the 2013 JP Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco, Calif.

Don Cowling joins Proteus Digital Health as Senior Vice President of Commercial Programs. Previously, he was Senior Vice President, Western Europe at Merck Serono, and Managing Director of the Merck operations. While at Merck Serono, Mr. Cowling spearheaded novel commercial strategies for some of the world's most successful digital health products. "The digital health business models I've pioneered improve clinical outcomes, drive down health system costs, and simultaneously achieve record growth and profitability. These business models are ideal for commercializing the technology platform developed by Proteus," said Mr. Cowling.

The newest members of the Proteus Digital Health Board of Directors include Dr. Robert Epstein and Myrtle Potter. They join 2012 Board appointee Chris Brinsmead in contributing significant commercial expertise to Proteus.

Formerly the President of Advanced Clinical Science and Research at Medco, Dr. Epstein is an expert in personalized medicine, drug safety, health economics and clinical outcomes research. "The Proteus digital health feedback system makes an important contribution to the appropriate use of medicines. This is a problem that costs the U.S. hundreds of billions of dollars every year and the time for digital solutions to improve healthcare is now," said Dr. Epstein.

Myrtle Potter is CEO of Myrtle Potter & Company and CEO of Myrtle Potter Media, a board member of Everyday Health and an on-air contributor to CNBC. Her previous roles include President and COO of Genentech, President of Bristol-Myers Squibb's cardiovascular and metabolic business and board member at Amazon.com, FoxHollow Technologies, eV3, Medco Health Solutions and Express Scripts. "Proteus has the technology and know-how to help patients and caregivers in ways not previously seen. The value creation opportunity is substantial and I look forward to bringing my experience with innovative biopharmaceutical and web service companies to help Proteus advance its business goals," said Ms. Potter.

Microservices Articles
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In their Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, and Mark Lav...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...
If your cloud deployment is on AWS with predictable workloads, Reserved Instances (RIs) can provide your business substantial savings compared to pay-as-you-go, on-demand services alone. Continuous monitoring of cloud usage and active management of Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Relational Database Service (RDS) and ElastiCache through RIs will optimize performance. Learn how you can purchase and apply the right Reserved Instances for optimum utilization and increased ROI.
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a common and reliable transmission protocol on the Internet. TCP was introduced in the 70s by Stanford University for US Defense to establish connectivity between distributed systems to maintain a backup of defense information. At the time, TCP was introduced to communicate amongst a selected set of devices for a smaller dataset over shorter distances. As the Internet evolved, however, the number of applications and users, and the types of data accessed and...
Consumer-driven contracts are an essential part of a mature microservice testing portfolio enabling independent service deployments. In this presentation we'll provide an overview of the tools, patterns and pain points we've seen when implementing contract testing in large development organizations.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
You have great SaaS business app ideas. You want to turn your idea quickly into a functional and engaging proof of concept. You need to be able to modify it to meet customers' needs, and you need to deliver a complete and secure SaaS application. How could you achieve all the above and yet avoid unforeseen IT requirements that add unnecessary cost and complexity? You also want your app to be responsive in any device at any time. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Allen, General Manager of...
