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.
