|I was trained as an Electrical Engineer and
Computer Scientist and have been working in medical computing
for more than 35 years. Until 1997, I was a Senior Research
Scientist at Stanford University Medical School.
I have a significant record of
accomplishments in medical computing. My bibliography includes
over 40 papers (see below). I was a member of the Board of
Directors of Computers in Cardiology (an international
association of physicians, engineers and scientists) for 15
years and served as President for three years. I was also Director of Information Systems for Computers in Cardiology
and operated the Computers in Cardiology web site.
In addition to QCA PlusPlus, I have designed several other important medical computer systems
and I also hold a patent for a cardiac monitoring device. In
recognition of my achievements, I have been listed in Who's
Who in Science and Engineering, Who’s Who in America and
Who’s Who in the World.

Other Medical Computing Systems That I Have Designed:
- The Hewlett Packard Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory
Hemodynamic Analysis System.
- The Hewlett Packard Arrhythmia Monitoring System.
- The Hewlett Packard Coronary Arteriography Reporting
- The Hewlett Packard Left Ventricular Analysis System.
- The SU-CCSS medical database system.
- AAP, a program for the collection and reporting of
cardiac angiographic data for the NHLBI-sponsored BARI
research project. This program was later adapted for use in
angiographic reporting at Stanford Hospital.
