Vineyard will lead all technical initiatives related to the company's products and services roadmap and he will be responsible for architecting the company's internal infrastructure. He will guide SecureCare in identifying new opportunities to leverage the company's development capabilities and expand its technology services as its flagship product, Sfax™, continues to evolve. In his role as CTO, he will oversee the integration of Sfax™ into third-party solutions and will also lead the progression of Sfax™, to a complete service-oriented architecture (SOA) complemented by intelligent business interfaces that will create a more efficient development and integration timeline.

"David's knowledge and passion for the future development and expansion of Sfax made him the perfect fit for this position," said Dennis Nasto, CEO of SecureCare Technologies. "Since joining SecureCare, he has made a significant impact on the company and has been invaluable in the implementation of the Sfax web services and integration roadmap.

Prior to his promotion, Vineyard served as the Development Director and Lead Systems Engineer for SecureCare. Before joining SecureCare in 2007, he practiced as a software engineer for over 20 years servicing industry giants such as Cisco Systems, Inc., Dell Computer Corporation, IBM, Unisys Corporation, United Health Care (Covantage) and The Delphi Groupe, Inc. While working with Dell, Vineyard designed the AutoShip TM, an enterprise level solution that automated the shipping of packages from several Dell facilities and improved performance by as much as 400 percent, delivering an ROI in just 47 days. While at IBM, he collaborated with European developers in the creation of an enterprise level environment for RailTrac.

Vineyard attended the University of Texas at Austin.

"In ten short months, we have made significant progress on the technological front by integrating our web services application with some of the industry's top EMR and health care IT vendors. My long term vision includes expanding our technology platform to a fax over Internet protocol (FOIP), to be compatible with multiple software products and most electronic devices used in health care. This would enable hospitals, doctors' offices and other health care providers to send and receive data, using our FOIP, directly from the varied applications being used to run health care businesses. My technology vision is 100 percent focused on dramatically reducing the time and money our customers spend on workflow, allowing for more time with their patients and ultimately, higher quality health care," stated David Vineyard, CTO of SecureCare Technologies.
