Dr. Seymour has pioneered initiatives in electronic medical publishing for over 25 years. He founded Gold Standard, an innovator in online drug information and medical education, having written the Clinical Pharmacology software himself, and ran the company from 1993-2002. Gold Standard was subsequently acquired by Elsevier.
in 2002, Jon became CEO of the Clinical Tools Division and then Chief Medical Officer for Wolters Kluwer Health, the world’s leading medical publisher. As CMO, he worked with all major brands, including Lippincott Williams & Wilkins and Ovid, to effectively leverage the assets in all key growth areas of medical informatics, including point-of-care, point-of-learning, electronic medical records integration, e-prescribing, disease management, pharma-focused data, online advertising, and paid search.
In 2008, Jon joined Reed Group as President of Guidelines, where he expanded the market for the MDGuidelines return-to-work tools and disability durations through the introduction of predictive modeling and point-of-care web services. Reed Group was acquired by Guardian Life in 2012, after which he completed Reed's asset purchase of the ACOEM Practice Guidelines in 2013.
In 2014, Jon joined the Work Loss Data Institute team as Client Consultant and Advisory Board Member, and formed a strategic partnership with WLDI for Peers to provide sales, consulting, and technology services. WLDI was acquired by Hearst Health via its MCG business unit in 2017.
