For more than a decade Ackerson, 45, has been developing business solutions for healthcare, DB Technology’s most fertile target market, with a base of 150 healthcare customers. Ackerson has also gained a notable reputation for developing in the programming technology currently used in RAS.
“He is steeped in the RAS technology and also very well connected to expert resources in the niche areas where we plan to take our product line,” said Charles Wilson, CEO of DB Technology.

“DB Technology was a perfect fit,” said Ackerson. “I’m working with a veteran team of programmers I’ve gotten to know through the development community. I look forward to creating the next generation of a first-rate product like RAS.”
RAS, especially known for improving healthcare financial management and patient accounting, captures and consolidates data from multiple information silos into a centralized database for document management processing, workflow, archiving and authorized access.

Enhanced document management and imaging capabilities with back-end support for other health information technology platforms are also on tap for 2011. Ackerson will grow the development team by 30 percent in the next 12 months.

As a senior programmer for his previous employer, Aergo Solutions, Ackerson developed the document management component for the company’s workflow product Escort, which is designed for hospital patient accounting systems.
Ackerson’s healthcare development credits also include Web-accessed patient medication and lab management products for physicians, home medical equipment management systems for medical supply stores and patient monitoring for home healthcare agencies.
