Moreover, he will act as CEO of Preventicus Managed Care (Division of Preventicus GmbH).

He combines profound expertise in scaling business with excellent thought leadership. Previously, Ljubisav Matejevic was the Vice President Ascom Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), led their Global Strategic Alliances team, and scaled the Global Healthcare Ecosystem for the Swiss company.

Dr. Thomas Huebner, CEO of Preventicus, states: “We are very excited to welcome Ljubisav Matejevic to the Preventicus team.

On the other hand, clinical studies have proven that nine out of ten strokes are preventable. The main risk factors include undetected cardiac rhythm disorders, primarily atrial fibrillation. I am enthusiastic to join Preventicus and to be in a position to significantly contribute to not only preventing cerebrovascular accidents worldwide with our comprehensive managed care programs, but also providing a solution that enables healthcare systems to significantly reduce their cost burden linked to stroke, chronic, and acute cardiovascular events.”
