WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OptimizeRx Corp. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: OPRX), the leading provider of healthcare technology solutions helping life sciences companies reach and engage healthcare professionals (HCPs) and patients, today announced it has successfully completed its acquisition of Healthy Offers, Inc., dba Medicx Health (“Medicx”), a leading healthcare consumer-focused omnichannel marketing and analytics company. The two companies will operate independently through 2023 with full integration during the first quarter of 2024. The Company will hold a conference call on Monday, November 6, 2023, at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss its results for the third quarter period ended September 30, 2023, as well as details of the acquisition. OptimizeRx third quarter financial results will be issued in a press release prior to the call.
With the closing of the Medicx acquisition, the Company will expand its executive team with the addition of Medicx’s President, Theresa Greco, becoming the Chief Commercial Officer of OptimizeRx. Theresa will lead commercial strategy and execution for the Company and report directly to Steve Silvestro. Theresa is an experienced commercial leader having driven growth as an executive of multiple large-scale healthcare-focused organizations prior to taking the helm at Medicx, including at Prognos Health, MMIS, Lexis Nexis, and CSC.
“Theresa brings a wealth of knowledge and demonstrated results directing commercial and business strategies for organizations focused on data and technology solutions for life sciences’” said Will Febbo chief executive officer, OptimizeRx. “I’m confident that her balanced approach, knowledge of our customers, and commitment to growth will position us to bring our organizations together as a commercial powerhouse focused on meeting the strategic engagement needs of our customers and expanding our footprint within our combined books of business.”
Steve Silvestro will step into a new role as President, leading all aspects of corporate strategy and daily business management.
“Steve’s commercial leadership has resulted in our business more than doubling in size during his tenure here. He was also instrumental in the development of our Dynamic Audience Activation Platform (DAAP), which is a key internal technological advancement that made the acquisition of Medicx possible,” continued Febbo, “I’m pleased to announce Steve’s new role of President, which will be a very natural transition for both Steve and the Company. Steve’s leadership style has always extended organizationally, and in my eyes, this is a testament to his commitment to strategically positioning us with our customers and partners, which has been transformative to our go-to-market over the past four years.”
No other leadership changes will occur at the executive level.
