Barbara Benedict Joins Notal Vision as Director, Patient Engagement

Life Science Partner is pleased to announce the recruitment of Barbara Benedict to Notal Vision as Director of Patient Engagement.

Notal Vision is a tele-health company offering the first patient-initiated, home-based monitoring system to prevent the progression of macular degeneration through early detection and intervention. The technology combines a physical device with a data management infrastructure and a cloud-based physician monitoring system.

In her new role, Benedict will have broad responsibility over all operational aspects of the customer experience, developing key patient engagement strategies and ensuring an exceptional experience for patients and their caregivers.

Previously, Benedict led customer engagement and marketing at Conifer Health, the healthcare management services subsidiary of Tenet Health. Prior to joining Conifer Health Solutions, Benedict spent 4 years in enterprise physician marketing and communications for BayCare Health System, a health care system connecting patients to a wide range of services at 14 hospitals throughout central Florida. She also spent three years as Director, Customer Relations, Marketing and Operations at Healthcare Partners, which manages and administers healthcare products for contracted health plans. Here she led operations for a large multi-specialty medical clinic including a comprehensive customer relations program and community engagement program.

“Barbara has demonstrated she knows how to use remote monitoring technologies to keep patients well, and that she can build and enact a strategy for ensuring these patients are engaged and supported throughout the entire patient journey,” notes Tom Callaway, MD, MBA, President of Life Science Partner. “Her blend of patient-centered empathy and healthcare operations rigor make her a great match for this important role.”

Benedict earned a degree in Marketing and Business Development from the University of South Florida.
