NEW YORK, Jan. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Happtique, Inc., the first total mobile solution for healthcare, has named Ben Chodor as Chief Executive Officer (CEO). He will lead Happtique's mission to give healthcare enterprises—like hospitals, continuing care facilities, and physician practices—secure, individually branded, multi-platform application stores that support employee and patient mobile technology use.
Chodor brings 25 years of healthcare, pharmaceutical, technology, and start-up experience to Happtique, most recently as Sr. Vice President of Global Streaming & Virtual Events at InterCall.
