Nox Health, specializing in sleep diagnostics and sleep care management, has hired Brigitte Nettesheim as president of enterprise business, effective immediately. 

In this role, Nettesheim will have responsibility for Nox Health’s value-based sleep care management business, which provides plan sponsors and health plans the means to improve the health of those with chronic conditions, according to a release from the company.

Brigitte joins Nox from Aetna, a CVS Health company, where she has spent the majority of her career in positions of increasing responsibility. Most recently, Brigitte served as president of enterprise and national accounts at Aetna. Previously she was president of the north central region and joint venture market and, prior to that, CEO of Aetna’s accountable care solutions organization with responsibility for the development, growth, and performance of Aetna’s value-based care and contracting models including Aetna’s Whole Health product.

“We’re delighted to welcome an executive of Brigitte’s caliber to the Nox team and know her significant domain expertise, leadership, and track record of innovation will help guide Nox through our next stage of growth and expansion,” says Sigurjon Kristjansson, CEO of Nox Health, in a release. “Brigitte brings a unique understanding of the employee benefits marketplace and the needs of plan sponsors who are looking for specialty networks to manage costs and improve the health of their members.”

Nettesheim earned a master’s degree in business administration from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. She received her bachelor of science in economics with a minor in systems engineering from the United States Military Academy at West Point and served in the United States Army, departing with the rank of captain.

“Sleep is a missing but foundational gap in care, inextricably linked to the chronic conditions which drive plan sponsor and health plan costs,” says Brigitte Nettesheim, president Nox Health, enterprise division, in a release. “In my experience, the Nox value-based sleep care management program provides the only network that enables plan sponsors to both measurably improve the health of their populations but also significantly reduce their healthcare utilization and lower total healthcare costs. I look forward to leveraging my background and insights to accelerate adoption and growth.”
