Terry Wolters- Founder & CEO
Terry Wolters is a highly diversified and successful professional with over 35 years’ experience in technology and business. He has held direct Profit and Loss (P&L) responsibility for several businesses and business departments and in all cases managed a successful Return on Investment (R.O.I); he understands that success comes with “client focus”.

His experience also includes a successful private equity raise of $42mm as founder and chairman of SentitO Networks. SentitiO Networks designed, developed and successfully introduced to the market the first integrated Session Initiated Protocol (SIP) Voice over IP (VoIP) switch. Carriers leveraged the SentitO carrier grade “IP swtich” to provide a broader and more economical distribution for client voice, data and video services and by-passed less efficient and more costly telco facilities. This success was achieved during one of the most difficult market conditions of the telecommunications/networking industry.

Warren K. Bickel, PhD- Chief Scientist
Dr. Bickel is a recognized authority and scholar on the subject of “addiction” and as a professor and the director of the Addiction Recovery Research Center at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute has held numerous levels of responsibility including:
• Inaugural Holder, Virginia Tech Carilion Behavioral Health Research Professorship
• Director, Addiction Recover Research Center
• Professor of Psychology, College of Science, Virginia Tech
• Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine, Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine
The world’s oldest scientific organization studying addiction, the College on Problems of Drug Dependence, selected Warren Bickel as the 2016 recipient of the Nathan B. Eddy Award. The annual award is the college’s highest honor and acknowledges outstanding research efforts that advance the knowledge of drug dependence.
“Out of the awards we offer, the Nathan B. Eddy Award, is the biggest and most prestigious,” said Mark A. Smith, chair of the awards committee for the College on Problems of Drug Dependence and a professor of psychology and neuroscience at Davidson College in North Carolina. “This award is an acknowledgement of Dr. Bickel’s entire research career in the field, including the contributions he has made to substance abuse research.”
Bickel studies discounting of delayed rewards — why a person might decide a quick fix now is worth more than other long-term rewards, such as health— in an effort to understand how and why people decide to use drugs or alcohol or engage in other risky behaviors. His eventual hope is that his research will lead to new interventions to help people with addiction.
According to Dr. Bickel “fundamental to solving the problem of addiction and other dysfunctional health behaviors is to understand how an individual continues to engage in behavior despite recognizing that this behavior is both problematic and self-handicapping”. Part of the NotifiUs long term service goal is to provide data analysis of a patients current reminder program and suggest changes if improvement in patient adherence is needed.
