SPEAKER PROFILE:

Steve Malik is a visionary entrepreneur with three decades of health information technology experience as a pioneer in patient portals, electronic health records and full risk managed care systems. Currently, he is Executive Chairman of Medfusion, a Cary, NC company he founded in 1996 and re-acquired in August 2013. Prior to this role, Malik was Senior Vice President of Intuit, and President and General Manager of the Intuit Health Group, the company’s fastest-growing business unit. He led the business unit’s initiatives to strengthen the relationship between physician practices and their patients by making communication and the ability to accomplish key tasks better, easier, and more efficient. Malik joined Intuit in May 2010 following their acquisition of Medfusion. In 2010, he was a finalist for Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

Under Malik’s leadership, Medfusion has grown from a medical website development company to the leading provider of enhanced healthcare communication solutions. His vision created a portfolio of solutions that let healthcare providers offer superior service to their patients while improving office efficiency and generating revenue. The US government now requires Malik’s vision in legislation to digitize the industry while including the patient to reduce costs.

As Chairman of North Carolina Football Club, Malik has ushered in a new era for soccer in North Carolina. He has overseen a full rebrand of the club in 2016 as well as the arrival of the NC Courage and the collaboration with NCFC Youth in 2017, creating the largest youth-to-pro club in the country. His leadership and vision have resulted in him being appointed to the United States Soccer Federation Board of Directors and becoming Chairman of the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) Executive Committee, where he helps shape the future of both men's and women's soccer in the United States.

Malik has held senior leadership positions in publicly traded companies and ownership equity positions in several entrepreneurial firms since the dawn of the health information technology industry starting with practice management systems in the eighties.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration with honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is the principal in a venture capital firm investing in software and environmentally friendly technology opportunities primarily in the Southeast US. Steve has 4 children and enjoys soccer, fishing and sailing in his free time.
