Bruno Lempernesse partners with co-founder Madelyn Trupkin Herzfeld to combine data and cancer care expertise to inform the future of cancer care
February 3, 2021 – Miami, FL – Carevive Systems (Carevive), the leading oncology-focused health technology company centered on understanding and improving the cancer patient experience, has appointed Bruno Lempernesse as Chief Executive Officer.
Lempernesse, a veteran health technology executive at the forefront of real-world patient data, joins the company’s co-founder, Madelyn Trupkin Herzfeld, in leading Carevive. Herzfeld will continue to serve as Director, and take on the role of Vice Chairman, in which she will oversee oncology practice and health system network partnerships, and chair Carevive’s Strategic Advisory Board. The two will partner on corporate development relationships as well as the company’s overall growth strategy.
Under Lempernesse’s leadership, the company plans to accelerate its vision to collect and analyze real-world patient-reported outcomes and care pathways to continuously improve upon the cancer care experience across the United States. Lempernesse’s main focus will be scaling Carevive’s innovative cancer care digital platform, currently in use by dozens of health systems across the United States, to help cancer care teams monitor and manage their patients remotely between clinic visits. In addition to Carevive’s cancer care digital platform, he will focus on increasing Carevive’s remote patient management functionality (Carevive PROmpt®), growing Carevive’s Oncology Pragmatic Trial Investigator Network (Carevive OPT-IN®), to conduct real-world studies evaluating patient experiences, and building stronger evidence for treatment and symptom pathways.
“Multiple stakeholders have an interest in connecting clinical data and patient-reported outcomes data, including life science companies, clinicians, and payers, in order to improve patient care,” said Lempernesse. “With a committed team, board and co-founder, Carevive will reshape the way cancer care is delivered, and make treatments and therapies more personalized. I’m pinching myself knowing that I found a company with not only massive growth potential but with the patient at the center – the possibilities are endless.”
“Bruno is a seasoned, high-growth executive and is also an expert in generating and analyzing real-world data,” said Herzfeld, an oncology nurse with deep expertise in cancer care. “We have a meaningful vision to make cancer care better for patients and their families. Bruno’s experience in growing successful real-world evidence companies and my oncology expertise are the perfect complement to scale the company, and we have shared passion to ensure our vision becomes a reality. Despite the explosion in the new cancer treatments approved by regulators there is an unmet need for reporting of real-world patient experiences and outcomes with each of these treatments. As we look to the future, Carevive data will be key to providing those insights.”
Formerly a Senior Vice President and General Manager at SHYFT Analytics, Lempernesse joins Carevive from Acorn AI, a Medidata company, having led their commercial data solutions division. His 25–year experience at the intersection of real-world patient data analytics and corporate leadership leaves him perfectly positioned to bring Carevive’s technologies to the entire cancer care ecosystem. His other experiences in advancing healthcare data analytics include serving as CEO at Inflexxion and multiple executive global roles at Cegedim.
