Nicole Latimer is Chief Executive Officer of Medrio. As CEO, Nicole carves out her time in three equally and critically important areas: studying the life sciences industry; making decisions about how Medrio can have a greater impact on that industry, and then focusing on the best way to communicate those decisions to staff and customers.
She brings 25 years of impressive and broad-based healthcare experience, including stints at The Advisory Board Company (now part of Optum) and Deloitte Consulting where she focused on population health management, health system growth strategies, patient and employee education, and SaaS development and delivery. Most recently, in her role as CEO of Staywell, she drove the company’s mission to be the premier provider of lifestyle risk management programs for the entire healthcare ecosystem leveraging behavioral science as the foundation for improving health outcomes. She shines at redesigning processes, increasing efficiency, and reducing costs.
Nicole’s background gives her a unique perspective on the patient’s journey. She recognizes the need for technology to be user friendly and accessible for patients, while also providing accurate and complete data for clinicians. Nicole excels at observing patient and clinician behavior and applying those observations to design software and solutions that minimize queries, provide accurate data, and reduce the time spent configuring the software to allow for more focus on the patients.
Nicole received her B.A. from Dartmouth College, where she graduated with distinction. She went on to receive two graduate degrees from the Ross School of Business Administration at the University of Michigan: Master of Health Services Administration with an emphasis in Operations and Epidemiology and an MBA with an emphasis in Corporate Strategy and Marketing, graduating again with distinction.
Nicole is based in Washington, D.C. where she and her husband stay busy raising two teenage sons. In her spare time, Nicole’s passions include running, golfing, skiing, and Wolverine football (GO BLUE!).
As CEO, Nicole understands the need for work-life balance and instills this value among her employees. Knowing that you can’t do your best work unless you take time to refresh and recharge your brain, she exercises (avid skier and golfer), meditates, and reads. She also credits golf with teaching her valuable leadership skills like humility and allowing her to shake things off and not let one bad shot (or decision) ruin her day.
