Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 28, 2014
SnapMD, the leading private-label enterprise telemedicine software company, today announced that Jack Steele has joined its Board of Advisors. A highly regarded software and quality expert, Mr. Steele has lead numerous innovative companies to great success by sharply focusing on high quality products and service excellence. He will provide SnapMD’s leadership invaluable guidance regarding strategy and performance management frameworks for the long-term.
“Jack is a proven CEO with significant experience building healthcare software companies to exits by delivering high quality products and services,” said SnapMD CEO, Dave Skibinski. “With four Malcolm Baldrige Awards and two Deming Awards to his credit, we could not have asked for a more astute advisor to our company.”
In addition to being a former Baldrige examiner himself, Jack has helped organizations achieve four Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Awards from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), six Baldrige site visits, two Deming Prizes, at least a dozen state-level Baldrige Awards, as well as breakthrough results for too many companies to name. Jack first became a practitioner of performance excellence, Balanced Scorecards, and strategy management three decades ago, when he contributed to Florida Power & Light’s Deming Quality Management Award win in 1989, making Florida Power & Light the first company outside of Japan to win this prestigious prize. Since then, Jack has applied strategy management and performance excellence methodologies in other executive and consulting positions, leading in several cases to doubled revenue, profits, and total market value.
“It is no secret that healthcare delivery is in crisis today and innovation is needed to stem the tide. It is also becoming clear that emerging telemedicine technologies will be part of the solution,” said Steele. “SnapMD’s approach is unique in that its sole focus is developing best-in-class telemedicine software and partnering with leading healthcare providers. Telemedicine is simply another tool in the physician’s ‘bag’ that enhances the patient-doctor relationship. I look forward to being a part of SnapMD’s success.”
