Two impressive hires for Big Health


In charting the future of digital medicine, Big Health makes two impressive additions to their Senior Management Team to help millions back to good mental health.

Big Health is a digital therapeutics company operating a healthcare portal, to offer behavioural programs and safe and effective non-drug alternatives for the most common mental health issues. They combine leading clinical insight with the best in design and technology to provide a scalable approach that’s accessible to all — including communities traditionally underserved by mental health care. Backed by industry-leading peer-reviewed research and randomized controlled trials, Big Health has recorded industry leading utilization rates upwards of 40%, reflecting the growing demand for, and adoption of, its evidence based digital health solutions Sleepio and Daylight, for poor sleep and anxiety. Their programs are reimbursed across over 10 million members and by some of the most prominent global healthcare organizations, including CVS Health and NHS Scotland.

Founded in 2010 in San Francisco by Peter Hames and Professor Colin Espie, Big Health has recently locked in a $75 million series C funding round led by Softbank Vision Fund 2. It plans to use the new money to ramp up its commercial growth and product strategy through mass adoption, setting a tentative goal to launch six new digital therapeutics by 2024.

Elizabeth Alcorn has joined as Vice President Client Success, to lead the development of Big Health’s best-in-class client experience and provide vision, direction and leadership to make Big Health a preferred, industry-leading behavioural digital medicine partner. Elizabeth previously worked as the Vice President Customer Success at Mercury Healthcare, where she served a key role in driving growth and cementing industry relations to support small and national healthcare executives with digital innovation, business development and marketing initiatives. Prior to this, Elizabeth gained over 6 years of experience in client success in her role as Associate Vice President of Client Development at Healthgrades.

Lydia Snyder joined Big Health as Senior Director, Commercial Partnerships and brings a wealth of experience in scaling high growth businesses, from partnership development and technology implementation to major account management with Top 25 Fortune clients. Having spent 5 years working at Castlight Health, Lydia moved to Vim, where she started as Principal Implementation Manager of Health Plans before being promoted to Customer Success of Health Plan Partnerships. Lydia joins Big Health to continue building their strong commercial partnerships and improve health outcomes on an enormous scale.
