MIRAMAR, Fla. and Chicago (Dec 8, 2020) – MDLIVE Inc. today announced the appointment of Anthony (Tony) Belthrop as the company’s Chief Information Security Officer, who has assumed a seat on the company’s executive leadership team.

“Security and privacy is a cornerstone commitment to the millions of patients we serve,” said Mindy Heintskill, Chief Growth Officer, MDLIVE, Inc. “It is also important to our national network of thousands of physicians and providers, and our clients, which include the nation’s leading health plans, employers and health systems. It is paramount that we lead the evolution of strategies, systems and standards to ensure security and privacy for all of our stakeholders, and Tony is the leader that will drive that continued commitment.”
