San Francisco, CA, December 12, 2017 -- Vida Health, a digital therapeutic platform that helps employees overcome chronic physical and behavioral health problems, today announced the hires of Stephanie Peng, formerly of Livongo, and Raymond Lee, formerly of Proteus Health, as Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Product, respectively.
Peng and Lee will play critical roles as Vida Health continues to grow in the enterprise market and build out its suite of evidence-backed clinical programs to address chronic conditions.
“Stephanie and Raymond are both pioneers in the digital health space and they bring extraordinary value to Vida,” said Stephanie Tilenius, CEO of Vida Health. “Their backgrounds give them an intimate understanding of the challenges and opportunities of our industry, and they couldn’t be joining at a better time. Their insights will guide us as we continue to build out our product and expand our footprint in the market.”
Stephanie Peng has built her career leading financial and operational functions at several successful digital health and consumer technology companies, including Livongo. Her experience in the digital health space and working with fast growing technology companies will guide Vida as the company grows rapidly.
“Vida is on the precipice of something huge,” said Stephanie Peng, CFO of Vida Health. “The product, the science, and the demand are all culminating at the same time. Vida is poised to capture this unique moment in time and ensure that digital therapeutics for chronic disease are effective and ubiquitous. I’m excited to apply my background to help the company scale.”

His experience leading product innovation teams internationally gives him a breadth and depth of experience that Vida Health will leverage to develop a best-in-class solution.
“Behavioral science is the most effective way to improve health outcomes for patients with chronic disease. Vida understands that better than anyone,” said Raymond Lee, VP of Product at Vida Health. “Working with Vida’s extraordinary product team to continually bake in the best behavioral science into our model is going to have huge impacts on health, particularly when applied at the enterprise level.”
