BURNSVILLE, MN–Anser Innovation and Ōmcare announced today that Amanda Brinkman has been appointed to its Board of Directors. Brinkman is currently Chief Brand Officer at Deluxe Corporation and creator, producer, and host of the hit series on HULU “Small Business Revolution – Main Street.”
Ōmcare, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Anser Innovation, is a Minnesota-based health technology company that aims to extend the reach of caregivers and improve medication adherence and outcomes through its Ōmcare Home Health Hub™, which gives caregivers of all types—from physicians and pharmacists to home care providers or family members—the ability to see and speak to elderly or disabled dependents and confirm compliance with medication treatment plans from anywhere. The easy-to-use Ōmcare system is designed to facilitate remote monitoring and interaction via visual confirmation of a patient’s actions, which supports telehealth and virtual care services, and gives family members greater peace of mind.
“Amanda has amassed an extremely impressive marketing, public relations, and business development track record that will allow her to provide critical guidance to Anser Innovation as we move toward the commercialization of the Ōmcare Home Health Hub in 2020,” said Lisa Lavin, Founder and CEO of Anser Innovation and its family of companies. “In addition to her critical marketing acumen, boundless energy, and creative mindset, Amanda’s personal credo of ‘doing well by doing good’ is a perfect fit with our core values and brand aspirations.”

She has held executive-level positions at Allianz and UnitedHealth Group. In addition to leading internal creative agencies and business strategy at these top corporations, Brinkman has demonstrated her creative expertise through her work at cutting-edge creative firms, Fallon and McCann Minneapolis.
Brinkman is a board member for the Ordway Performing Arts Center, the Children’s Theatre Company, the Association of National Advertisers (ANA) and the Women’s Business Development Center Chicago. She has also served on the boards for Children’s Cancer Research Fund, Make-A-Wish, and The Salvation Army. She passionately volunteers for an array of causes, including the Special Olympics, Feed My Starving Children, People Serving People, the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota, the Jeremiah Program, and more.

This is a life-changing technology and I am thrilled to help raise awareness for this revolutionary approach.”
