CINCINNATI and NEW YORK – PM360, the premier information resource for marketing decision makers in the pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device sectors, has named two PatientPoint executives to its annual ELITE 100 list of the most influential people in the healthcare industry. Chief Growth Officer Traver Hutchins and Chief Analytics, Insights and Strategy Officer H. Scott Nesbitt are being honored with ELITE (Exceptional • Leaders • Innovators • Transformers • Entrepreneurs) awards in the Strategists and Data Miners categories, respectively.
Over the course of his more than 25 years as a health media executive and entrepreneur, Traver has consistently anticipated market changes and seized opportunity to help companies adapt. Since his arrival to PatientPoint in May 2017 in the newly created position of Chief Growth Officer, Traver has been integral to developing the company’s long-term growth plan and product roadmap while spearheading mergers and acquisitions efforts. Earlier this year, he played a critical role in the company’s partnership with MeU Care to launch the point-of-care (POC) mobile engagement and communications platform PatientPoint Connect.
Under Scott’s leadership, PatientPoint has become the POC industry’s preeminent purveyor of insight and value through best-in-class analytics and independent evaluation. Throughout his 17-year tenure, Scott has led the way in developing the company’s proprietary predictive measurement methodology to measure POC channel effectiveness, making PatientPoint a true trailblazer in its commitment to trust and transparency. He’s also shaping auditing standards for the entire industry as a leader within the Point of Care Communication Council (PoC3).
“Traver and Scott embody the key tenets of the ELITE 100: they are exceptional leaders working to innovate and continually transform the industry with an entrepreneurial spirit,” said PatientPoint Founder and CEO Mike Collette. “Traver’s uncanny ability to predict trends, seize opportunity and bring concepts to life coupled with Scott’s visionary work to develop auditing and validation standards for PatientPoint and the rest of our industry help make us the trusted POC leader. I’m honored to call them colleagues and congratulate them on this well-deserved recognition.”
