Caregility elevates telehealth trailblazer to chief nursing officer

Nurse thought leader, virtual care pioneer will drive clinical integrity in hybrid care programs and solutions

Wendy Deibert has been named chief nursing officer of Caregility, according to a Tuesday announcement.

Deibert moves into the new role from her previous position as senior vice president of clinical solutions at the Eatontown-based telehealth leader. As CNO, Deibert will provide clinical leadership and expertise to the firm, which is dedicated to connecting care for patients and clinicians, and its customers.

Deibert has played an instrumental role in establishing the company’s reputation as a clinically driven solution provider, helping to garner Caregility Cloud recognition as the “Best in KLAS” Virtual Care Platform (non-EMR) in 2021, 2022 and 2023. She brings 35 years of clinical experience as a bedside critical care nurse, telehealth operations manager and senior consultant to the role of CNO.

Prior to joining Caregility, Deibert served as vice president of telehealth services at Mercy Virtual, where she helped launch the world’s first all-virtual hospital in August 2015. She has since helped hundreds of health care teams across the U.S. and internationally to integrate sustainable virtual care programs into their care delivery models.

“Wendy’s dedication, passion and knowledge have been a driving force in Caregility’s growth since the inception of the company, and her promotion to CNO reflects the significant role she has played in establishing our clinical credibility,” Caregility President and Chief Operating Officer Mike Brandofino said. “As CNO, she will be a tremendous asset in informing virtual care strategy and roadmapping on behalf of our company, as well as our health system partners.”

“My experience as a patient, a nurse, a nurse manager and a virtual care program builder has afforded me a unique appreciation of the important role that telehealth can play in improving communications, care collaboration and patient engagement in their care journey,” Deibert said.

Deibert’s promotion to CNO follows the recent appointment of Kedar Ganta as Caregility’s new chief product and engineering officer and Paul Oliver as the company’s new chief revenue officer. The three new executive appointments are representative of Caregility’s growth and its commitment to delivering clinically driven enterprise telehealth solutions that health care organizations can trust, scale and build on as hybrid care models advance.
