Tuesday, May 31, 2005

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- AAHomecare officials expected to name a new chairman of its Rehab and Assistive Technology Council this month. The new chairman will replace Matthew Burke, who resigned the post March 31 to devote himself fully to his new HME software company, Unitas Technologies. "To do this job right, you have to be on top of everything that is going on," said Burke, adding that the demands of his start-up company made it difficult for him to do that. "It was a big commitment for me to start my own company, and I had to put all my effort into making it work."
