He competed a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Block at The University of Texas at Austin in 1981 followed by a Doctor of Medicine at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas in 1985. The emergence in mid 1990’s of electronic data support for medical practice was a natural and welcome domain for him. Beginning in 1998 and advancing through today, he has contributed to development, testing, deployment and improvement of healthcare data systems. Starting with early versions of wireless LAN based electronic prescribing through today’s advancement toward interoperative local and cloud based systems with decision support and toward the integration of patient into the data care stream he is an enthusiastic participant. From systems simply intended to reduce handwriting errors to integrations that reduce inefficiencies toward intelligent algorithms that proactively close care gaps. This is a worthy challenge while managing and leading a successful private group practice. He is recognized as a practical and “hands on” leader in the applications of technology and data systems to patient care and medical practice.
