ATLANTA, 10/15/2019 — The Lewy Body Dementia Association (LBDA) is proud to announce the appointment of Anthony (Tony) J. Schueth, Founder, CEO and Managing Partner of Point-of-Care Partners, to its board of directors.
“We are pleased to welcome Tony to the LBDA Board of Directors. His commitment to LBDA’s mission has been evident through his company’s sponsorship of the fundraiser, ‘Cruise for a Cure,’ an event held in South Florida from 2016-2018 in honor of his late father, James J. Schueth. Tony will be a great asset to our growing and evolving organization. We are excited to have him join our team,” Tina Christie, President, Board of Directors.
Schueth has over 25 years of experience in health information technology (HIT). His health IT management consulting company, Point-of-Care Partners, is focused on improving health by facilitating the delivery of the right therapy to patients by enhancing the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery via automation.
“The year after my father passed away, my family and I resolved to help families and individuals affected by this devastating disease,” Schueth said. “We started a fundraiser and, over the course of three years, Cruise for a Cure, raised more than $50,000 for LBDA. I look forward to continuing contributing my time and energy on a national-level as a Board Member.”
Tony’s dedication to LBDA, while fueled by his own personal experience, is also informed by his professional path. His company, Point-of-Care Partners (POCP), is focused on improving patient outcomes through use of healthcare technology. Since POCP’s founding in 2006, he and his leadership team have been instrumental in advancing use of industry-changing technology such as electronic prescribing and emerging technologies that are being targeted to address some of our nation’s most pressing healthcare challenges such as medication adherence, price transparency and interoperability. In these and other areas, Tony has testified before the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics (NCVHS), as well as provided technical assistance to both CMS and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC).
