ATLANTA, March 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Digital
Assent has expanded its leadership team to meet the rapidly
growing demand for its award-winning PatientPad® solution.
The PatientPad is a self-service
patient check-in and education solution designed to automate the
patient intake process and deliver targeted health information to
interested patients while they wait. The company has added five key
executives to its sales, business development, operations and
product development teams.
“We’ve assembled an impressive team of experienced professionals
to help our company deliver on the rapidly growing demand for
self-service technology in the U.S. healthcare market,” said Andrew
Ibbotson, president and CEO of Digital Assent. “Given the massive
push to convert to electronic health records and the exploding
popularity of mobile touch-screen devices, we expected the
PatientPad to be well-received by physicians and patients, but
early demand for the PatientPad has outstripped our most optimistic
expectations. The market potential is huge, and we have the
team needed to capitalize on it.”
Market adoption of the PatientPad is being driven by David
Schwickerath, the company’s vice president of sales. With more than
30 years of successful technology sales and management experience,
Schwickerath is responsible for the company’s overall sales
strategy and execution. Prior to Digital Assent, Schwickerath
served as vice president of worldwide sales for Lancope.
Before this, he served as senior vice president of sales for
Borland Corporation, Starbase Corporation and Technology Builders,
Inc. Schwickerath has also served in executive sales
management roles with Computer Associates, GE Software
International and Automatic Data Processing, Inc.
Cynthia Foster recently joined Digital Assent as the inside
sales manager. As such, she will
