Long-Time Los Angeles Area Chiropractor Dr. David Speakman Joins ACOM Health as Company Builds Out Complement of On-Staff Doctors

DULUTH, GA--(Marketwire - February 22, 2011) - Sam Mikhail, vice president of sales at ACOM Health, is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. David Speakman as a regional manager of the company's ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 Certified RAPID Chiropractic Software sales team. Dr. Speakman, a veteran chiropractor, operated a multidisciplinary clinic in Thousand Oaks, California for 20 years before transitioning to the business world, and operates from his offices in Sandpoint, Idaho. ACOM Health now has six chiropractors staffing positions throughout the company.

"ACOM Health has doctors in strategic positions such as sales, product development, professional services and administration," Mikhail said, noting that Dr. Speakman is the second chiropractor to join the company in the last four months. "This policy has been lauded as an indication of our commitment to bringing clinics mired in outdated paper-based workflow into the 21st century. Internally, it also provides us with valuable clinical experience we need to guide our accelerating growth and refine our product and service offerings."

According to Mikhail, Dr. Speakman's career has provided him with a rich array of professional, commercial and technical skills. A general practitioner specializing in rehabilitation, Dr. Speakman operated a clinic of 16 medical professionals and support personnel. He sold the Los Angeles-area clinic in 2008 and moved to northern Idaho, changing focus from the practice of chiropractic to chiropractic software sales. Impressed with the RAPID chiropractic software suite, he resigned his previous position early this year to join ACOM Health.

"Over time I came to recognize ACOM Health as a leader in the chiropractic software field and I wanted to learn more about the company and its products," Dr. Speakman said. "I had that opportunity at a recent professional show and was deeply impressed. They appeared well ahead of their competitors in all areas that really matter. Moreover, they were already certified for Medicare reimbursements under the ARRA EHR Stimulus, something that is of vital importance to doctors. I'm delighted to help them realize their remarkable potential."
