Our Founder

A New Dream is Born

“Flashback to 1977. The Apple II goes on sale, the IBM PC is still 4 years in the future, and it’s my first year of med school. My dream is to master medicine. I spend my days pouring over textbooks and journals. To my chagrin, I soon realize the knowledge is too vast for the human brain (or mine, at least) to store and process optimally. And so a new dream is born: to harness the emerging power of computers to help doctors master the ever-evolving body of knowledge required to practice best medicine.

On graduation from med school in 1980, I began to study human intelligence, and to explore neural networks and artificial intelligence with my friend and mentor, Dr. Stan Franklin, founder of the Cognitive Computing Research Group at the University of Memphis. I also continued to pursue my clinical training and practice—so critical to finding the path to computer-aided diagnosis.

In 1991 I founded Challenger Corporation, the first company to provide personal computer training, self-assessment, and boards preparation for physicians. Today, Med-Challenger remains the leader in this field, with a broad array of programs for physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, medical students, and healthcare organizations.

Only recently have the hardware, software, AI and internet technologies advanced sufficiently to enable truly effective computer-aided diagnosis. To that end, my wife and co-conspirator, Alicia, and I founded Eureka Clinical Computing. Our intelligent medical assistant for physicians and patients, MidasMed.com, will debut in 2019.”
