Yadin Shemmer has been named the new CEO of Mango Health, the maker of a digital medication management platform. Shemmer, who was previously the company’s president, will take over the job from founder Jason Oberfest, who will continue to serve as a special advisor to the company.

“I am thrilled to have Yadin take the helm at Mango Health to spearhead the continued growth of the company,” Oberfest said in a statement. “There is no question that he is the best person to move the company forward. I have had the pleasure of working alongside him for the past year, and I have all the confidence in the world in him leading Mango into the future.”

Digital therapeutics maker Akili Interactive has appointed Dr. Anil S. Jina as its new SVP and head of medical affairs. In the new role, Jina will be overseeing the prelaunch of AKL-T01, the company’s video game-like therapeutic for children with ADHD, as well as working to build up Akili’s medical infrastructure and oversee the company’s newly formed Clinical Advisory Committee.

“I am extremely excited to have this opportunity at Akili to not just build a new team but to build a completely different kind of team,” Jina said in a statement. “With Akili’s unique platform and products, we have the amazing ability to bridge science and technology to address patient needs and to empower patients in a way no medicine or medicine company has before.”

EHR and practice management software company Greenway Health has picked up a new chief information security officer. Larry Whiteside comes to Greenway with more than 25 years of cybersecurity experience across multiple industries, and in his new role is directly responsible for the confidentiality of the company’s patient information and customer-facing systems.

“Data security is one of the most important aspects of healthcare technology today and can be the difference between success and failure for our customers,” Richard Atkin, CEO of Greenway Health. “Today’s healthcare practices need a partner that protects their data — and that’s what we’re doing at Greenway. Under Larry’s leadership, our data security team is providing our customers with the confidence they need to focus on delivering health care efficiently and safely, while we focus on all aspects of security.”

This isn’t Greenway’s only recent C-suite shuffle — earlier this month the health IT company named a new president as well.

DocuTAP, a company specializing in EMR and practice management software for urgent care clinics, has announced two new hires in Ronald Curtis, SVP of product, and Kerri Tietgen, EVP of people and culture. According to the company, Curtis comes on with more than 20 years of relevant experience, and most recently held a VP position at Cardlytics. Tiegen, on the other hand, ran her own consulting firm for more than 10 years prior to joining.

“DocuTAP is in a unique position to help shape the future of healthcare, and with that, we’re constantly looking for top talent that will have an immediate impact on both our employees and our customers,” Eric McDonald, CEO of DocuTAP, said in a statement. “Ron and Kerri bring incredible experience and skills to the team that will and I’m excited to see the impact they make on our organization.”
