He has a breadth and depth of expertise in building new capabilities, scaling operations to enable rapid growth and leading the evolution and maturation of immature processes.
In the Equiva COO role, Jones will be responsible for Equiva Health’s operations, product and technology functions. He will focus on expanding the company’s technical and operational capabilities to enable the continued growth of the company.
“Equiva brings to the market more than a decade of experience collaborating with health care organizations around innovation in patient experience, digital engagement and patient activation,” said Equiva CEO and Co-Founder Nir Altman. “Scott is an excellent complement to our team.
