ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, NJ & OVERLAND PARK, KS, Feb 28, 2023 AS Software, a leading provider of ultrasound reporting and image management solutions, today announced that Scott Coons and Thomas Schneck have been appointed to the company’s board of directors, following AEA Growth‘s investment in the company. Coons and Schneck bring more than 50 combined years of software leadership experience to the company.

Coons previously co-founded Perceptive Software in 1995, which provides enterprise content management software solutions. Coons led the company from its inception through its rapid growth and ultimate sale to Lexmark International, where he later became President of Lexmark Enterprise Software. Coons’ extensive background in strategic leadership includes the successful expansion of enterprise content and business process management solutions into the clinical and corporate healthcare space. He was a key influencer in the early transitions from traditional to automated workflows for thousands of hospital information systems across the U.S. and has in-depth knowledge of strategic planning and operations for systems integrations, installations, and technology.

“I am a strong proponent of automation that makes problem-solving easier for clinicians,” said Coons. “AS Software provides customized solutions for women’s health, radiology, and vascular clinicians and empowers them with all the information they need to provide the best patient care possible.”

Schneck joined DocuWare, which provides cloud document management solutions and workflow automation software, as a founding partner in 1990. Schneck scaled DocuWare to become a global market leader with a presence in 60+ countries. Schneck has deep leadership experience in building and scaling document management software and was instrumental in making previously niche paperless solutions accessible to organizations in mainstream healthcare markets. His comprehensive understanding of go-to-market strategies and ability to create a global footprint with differentiated technology aligns with AS Software’s long-term vision to innovate and expand globally.

“AS Software has a strong product solely focused on improving the efficient workflow and reporting for maternal-fetal medicine specialists (MFMs), sonographers and other clinicians. There’s a robust global market for the solutions AS Software offers”, says Schneck. “By executing on AS Software’s strategy, the company can bring value to hospitals of all sizes and become the standard for structured reporting.”

AS Software CEO David Lintz recently spoke of the value Coons and Schneck bring to AS Software. “Both Mr. Coons’ and Mr. Schneck’s hands-on approach and emphasis on strategic operations and product value will help us naturally grow while we focus on delivering the right tool for clinicians,” said Lintz. “Both have successfully built and deployed cloud solutions and their leadership experience and backgrounds are an invaluable addition to the board.”

Get to know Nasrin better through her spotlight interview below and make sure to connect with her on LinkedIn! 

You’ve been in the ultrasound field for over 15 years! Why did you choose ultrasound and how did you get started? 

“Ultrasound chose me. My background was in Computer Science, and I worked for five years as an Application Specialist. I knew I was interested in healthcare but was unsure of which direction to go. My journey began when I was fortunate enough to find a position at a hospital in the suburbs of Chicago. I had the opportunity to shadow a sonographer and from then on, I knew it was my calling!” 

You’ve spent much of your career at Texas Children’s Hospital.  Tell us about your journey there. 

“I started at Texas Children’s as an MFM sonographer. The department was brand new, and as it grew, I was able to take on more responsibility. Because I was well-versed in technology, I would ask a lot of questions about our technical capabilities. That’s when I started to grow into the leader that I am today. I went from an MFM sonographer to the Assistant Director of the MFM department, managing eight clinical sites.” 

You helped evaluate ultrasound reporting systems for the team at Texas Children’s, what was that process like? 

“The system we were using wasn’t cutting it for how busy we were. The options were to upgrade the current system or go with something different. We decided to see what was out there and ask the sonographers and physicians what was most important for them.  After assessing three different reporting systems, the demo from AS was everything we were looking for.” 

What was it you were looking for in an ultrasound reporting system? 

“It needed to be reliable and easy to use for sonographers and physicians. The physicians wanted to create high-quality, easy-to-read reports that looked great to referring physicians. The goal was also to eliminate documenting in multiple EMR systems. Overall, AS answered the wants and needs of the department.” 

“It made a huge difference for us, and over the years I continued to be more impressed with the team at AS and establish wonderful relationships.” 

Now you’re going to work closely with Texas Children’s here at AS Software! Tell us about your career transition. 

“Texas Children’s was my home for 12 years, and I’m excited to continue working closely with Dr. Wesley Lee and the team. I see the opportunity to advocate both for them and for all of AS Software’s current and prospective customers — sharing best practices and incorporating feedback from into the product roadmap.”  

“We’re at the point where patient care truly needs support. Clinicians need the best technology that helps them improve their workflows and deliver great patient care. I’m looking forward to tapping into the side of the clinicians to deliver the best product to them, giving them what they’re looking for and what’s important on a day-to-day basis.” 

And now tell us some fun things about yourself, any hobbies? 

“I have a huge family that I love spending time with. I also enjoy traveling, and in my spare time I enjoy sewing! It could be as simple as making a dress or changing the color of my curtains.” 


Welcome, Nasrin! We can’t wait for all the great things to come with you here at AS Software. 

January is National Birth Defects Awareness Month, a time to raise awareness for birth defects and their impact on the health and well-being of families, individuals, and parents.

Nearly 120,000 babies are affected by birth defects each year, which can occur during any stage of pregnancy. Birth defects are also a leading cause of infant mortality in the U.S., accounting for 1 in 5 infant deaths, and in the U.S. each year, the total hospital costs of children with birth defects exceed $2.6 billion. (CDC.gov)

Screening and diagnostic ultrasounds are an important part of prenatal care, helping to provide diagnosis that allows families to make decisions and plan for the future.
