Tom Skelton is energized by our collective focus on delivering actionable intelligence to healthcare professionals so they can make informed care decisions that change lives for the better. He chose his leadership role at Surescripts to be at the forefront of what’s next in healthcare and for the opportunity to work alongside smart, dynamic teams to make a positive impact on our nation’s healthcare system.
Skelton is amazed by the changes he’s seen over the course of more than 30 years working in healthcare technology. Before joining Surescripts in 2014, he served as Chief Executive Officer of Foundation Radiology Group, a private equity-backed diagnostic imaging services firm that grew substantially under his leadership. His many other career accomplishments include serving as Chief Executive Officer for Misys Healthcare Systems and as a member of Elcomp Systems’ founding team.
After raising three children in North Carolina, Skelton and his wife now live in a refurbished farmhouse on 40 acres of land in rural Pennsylvania. They share it with two pit bulls—one inherited from their youngest daughter and the other adopted from a rescue program. These adoptions inspired them to become strong supporters of shelters and rescue operations dedicated to finding pit bulls the loving forever homes they deserve.
Skelton enjoys spending free time in the outdoors with family and friends, particularly his three grandsons. He enjoys hiking, biking, fishing and hunting, as well as the peace and quiet of tossing a Frisbee to their dogs or watching them swim in the stream that runs through their property.
