President and Founder
Leum Technologies, Inc. (LeumTech) is an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) based in Viroqua, Wisconsin that specializes in designing and building cloud-based apps and websites for the wholesale, retail, and medical industries. The company was founded in 2012 by Scott Leum.
Dr. Leum is a serial entrepreneur who has successfully founded several companies over the years, including Leum Software Solutions, Inc. and MediNotes Corporation. In addition to building each business, he was the primary software developer behind each of the company’s flagship products. Scott is formally trained as a podiatric physician and surgeon. He attended the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse and Des Moines University where he obtained Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degrees in addition to completing a Podiatric Orthopedic Residency and Biomechanics Research Fellowship.
BioMedix Vascular Solutions, Inc. 2009-2012
Prior to starting Leum Technologies, Scott was the Chief Software Technologist at BioMedix Vascular Solutions, Inc. where he oversaw the technology behind BioMedix’s software solutions that included TRAKnet Practice Management (PM), TRAKnet Lab, TRAKnet Outcomes, PDMS, and PADnet+
Leum Software Solutions, Inc.
Scott was the President and Founder of Leum Software Solutions, Inc., before it was acquired by BioMedix in 2009. The company focused on developing specialized software applications for the retail and medical industries. These applications included:
Building Better Bike Shops was the goal of Ascend Retail Management Software. What started out as a simple project to help a friend, Mark Brone, run his bike shop, grew into an international electronic dealer network that was eventually purchased by TREK Bicycle Corporation in 2004. Ascend was unique in that it came pre-loaded with vendor catalogs and was the first point-of-sale system to provide electronic ordering and display of real-time quantities from Quality Bicycle Products, a bicycle parts distributor.
As part of the purchase agreement with TREK, Leum Software was granted the right to create a sister version of Ascend for use outside of the bicycle industry. The product was named Encompass Retail Management Software and was used by a variety of businesses, including La Crosse Fireplace Co. and Ginny’s Antiques. A later version of the product was used by Harmony Valley Farm for delivery scheduling.
Typically, a medical practice needed to purchase separate software for billing, charting, etc. PodMed changed all that by offering billing, charting, scheduling, and inventory management in a single software application. Redundancy and duplicate entry disappeared while efficiency increased dramatically.
Interpret was a diagnostic reporting software application designed for use with Nihon Kohden’s EEG and MEB series of medical devices. It’s purpose was to import raw data from the medical device and convert the data into a medical report for the signing physician.
Scott worked with Jeff Stoy in 2001 to develop a medical billing application called AppMed. The software was Windows based and primarily sold to podiatrists.
Scott founded MediNotes Corporation in February, 1996 and was President until he resigned in 2000. During his time there, he was responsible for developing these applications:
This was the flagship product of MediNotes which was sold to podiatrists and was designed to create and manage History and Physicals (H&P), progress (SOAP) notes, and operative (surgical) reports. One of the most notable features of the software was the ability to “touch where it hurts” and to assemble sentences and paragraphs using a class library of medical objects.
The company later decided to expand outside of podiatric medicine. With this decision, and with the recent Evaluation and Management (E&M) requirements, a new product was needed and Charting Plus was designed and built as a result.
