UTMHealthcare, LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of UThisMe, LLC, which was formed in 2012 by three entrepreneurs in upstate New York: Seth Lachterman, Cameron Melville, and the late David Ackerman. They envisioned building applications around new encryption technology. Using patented technology, UTMHealthcare enables clinicians and case managers to oversee patient care. Patients require only a smartphone and peripheral devices to take key readings and keep their medical team fully up-to-date on their status, thereby enabling hospital discharges and decreasing readmissions.
Founder of En-Core Systems, a software company in existence since 1981, Seth developed a patented messaging technology that is the core of UTMHealthcare’s products.
A musician, entrepreneur, and philanthropist, Cameron founded the Philanthropic Center for the Arts, LLC (known as The Vortex LA) which strives for social and community change. His family founded the Melville Charitable Trust. Cameron has also supported medical relief efforts throughout the Ukraine crisis.
Mark Orton has held management positions at the VP level in a Fortune 500 electronics firm, co-founded a software company in the Enterprise Resource Planning market and has worked with numerous start-up and small company owners.
Clayton is Director of Sales. He has over 14 years of experience in health information technology, medical device sales and electronic health records integrations. He also has had years of international sales experience in Australia, Canada, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and South America.
Brandon has over 15 years of IT consulting, help desk management, and cybersecurity experience, working on a wide variety of teams and projects. He has also been an advocate for more mental health awareness in the tech industry.
