BOSTON, May 10, 2021 – B iofourmis, a Boston-based global leader in virtual care and digital therapeutics, has named Maulik Majmudar, MD, a cardiologist and leader in digital health transformation, as its chief medical officer. Dr. Majmudar will lead the expansion of the company's clinical care services—including near-term plans to offer in-home provider services that complement its robust care-at-home technology platform.
Most recently, Dr. Majmudar served as Medical Officer at Amazon, where he led several healthcare-related initiatives, including the development and launch of Amazon Halo, a health and wellness membership service targeted to consumers. Before Amazon, Dr. Majmudar was associate director of the Healthcare Transformation Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital and an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, where he was responsible for the identification, validation and implementation of digital health solutions to improve care delivery along with the patient and provider experience. Dr. Majmudar has served on Biofourmis' clinical advisory board since the company's inception in 2015 and on the Board of Directors since 2019.
"Healthcare has seen a rapid and seismic shift toward virtualization of care throughout the care continuum, including acute, post-acute, and chronic care, all accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic," said Dr. Majmudar. "Biofourmis is leading that charge with its innovative solutions to support hospital-level care at home as well as chronic condition management. We are building clinical capabilities to evolve from remote patient monitoring to remote patient management, with a focus on improving patients' lives, while reducing healthcare utilization and associated costs."
