MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As healthcare continues its evolution beyond the traditional brick and mortar provider facility, Zipnosis announced today that it has hired an enterprise technology leader to further scale its virtual care offerings for a market that is hungry for convenient, quality care at a lower cost. Scott Brown, alumni of Medtronic with 20+ years of experience in building teams and enterprise-scale systems, joins Zipnosis as the company's new Chief Technology Officer.
"We are pleased to welcome Scott to the Zipnosis family, and expect he will quickly make an impact as he helps Zipnosis' product and development teams rapidly extend and evolve our already market-defining virtual care platform," stated Jon Pearce, CEO at Zipnosis. Healthcare organizations increasingly prefer the benefits of a virtual care platform over disjointed, siloed telemedicine solutions. Brown's hire, with his deep experience in building scalable, HIPAA-compliant and easily integrated systems will further cement Zipnosis' position as the market leader that adeptly offers such virtual care at scale. "Scott's hire represents our continued investment in leadership that extends our frontline position in a market we've aggressively cultivated for innovative, integrated virtual care," added Pearce. "Bringing Scott on board is part of our commitment to investing not just in the needs our customers have today, but what they will look for and expect in virtual care in the future. Prior to joining Zipnosis, Brown held numerous senior executive technology positions, including the founding of his own software company where he developed outpatient care solutions that helped providers manage patients on complex care pathways and treatment plans. Before that, he was Vice President of Software Development at XRS Corporation, where he led global teams in modernizing legacy systems and launching new ones; and Senior Engineering Manager at Medtronic, where for over a decade he led initiatives to bring to life some of the company's most innovative medical devices on the market today.
