Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
Seamless Medical Systems today announced that Charles (Chuck) W. Patrick was appointed to the company’s board of directors. Since 2000, Mr. Patrick has served as Principal of Patrick Consulting; a management-consulting firm that helps emerging diagnostic and technology companies develop sales, marketing and distribution strategies. Mr. Patrick has also served as President and CEO of CallNexus, Inc. and was President and Co-owner of ADS Golf, Inc. Prior to 2000, Mr. Patrick held various marketing and sales executive positions with Biosite Inc. and the Diagnostics Division of Abbott Laboratories, Inc.
“We are very excited to have Chuck Patrick join our board of directors. He brings years of valuable industry experience, insights and relationships to our team ” commented Seamless Medical CEO and Founder, David Perez.
Mr. Patrick has over 35 years of marketing, sales, and distribution relationship management experience, along with a significant background in entrepreneurial leadership and development.
On his decision to become a board member, Mr. Patrick explained: "I chose to join the board of Seamless because of the unique business model that is focused on delivering a true paperless Patient Engagement Platform (PEP). For the past several years, all the focus has been on Electronic Health Records (billing, patient records, insurance, etc.) and the patient engagement piece has been neglected, leaving a major unmet need for Seamless to step in and solve. The SNAP platform will allow healthcare providers to integrate this process with their EHR systems and also empower patients to become more interactive in the management of their own healthcare."
Mr. Patrick currently serves on the boards of two publicly traded companies, Orasure Technologies, Inc. and diaDexus, Inc. Both companies are medical device and diagnostics companies, focused on oral fluid solutions for infectious diseases and Cardiac/Stroke diagnosis respectively. Mr. Patrick is a member of the audit and the nominating and corporate governance committees at OraSure and serves diaDexus as the chairman of the nominating and corporate governance committee and as a member of the audit committee. Mr. Patrick has also served previously on the compensation committees at both companies.
In addition to Mr. Patrick, Seamless Medical Systems’ board of directors consists of Tom Lopez, former executive of Microsoft; Dr. Donn Duncan, former chairman of Health Systems Int.; David S. Joseph, co-founder and CEO of five life science companies in medical technology, biomaterials and biopharmaceuticals and Dr. Timothy Perez a practicing surgeon at the University of New Mexico.
