Dr. Richard S. Dick, Ph.D Dr. Dick has a unique blend of education and experience that have brought him international recognition for advancing electronic health record technologies (EHR, EMR, PHR) from multiple standpoints: as a visionary, a designer/architect, and as an industry spokesperson. A veteran of both the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Academy of Sciences' Institute of Medicine (IOM)- where he directed the landmark IOM Study that launched our present EMR-era and co-authored the often-quoted seminal work, The Computer-based Patient Record: An Essential Technology for Healthcare (1991, 1997)- he led major research initiatives at the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and supervised MEDLINE. As the individual who conceived, designed, and led development of what may arguably be the largest pharmaceutical databases in the U.S. (five years of Rx data on over 200M Americans, updated and current every 24 hours), Dr. Dick has earned the characterization given him by Dr. Clayton M. Christensen, prominent author and professor at the Harvard Business School, as "one of our most disruptive innovators." The holder of several patents as well as ones currently pending, Dr. Dick is a "serial entrepreneur" who has been successful in getting support for innovative ideas and successfully launching them into the marketplace. Dr. Dick received his Ph.D. in Medical Biophysical and Computing (under Homer R. Warner, MD, PhD) from the University of Utah's world-class Medical Informatics M.D./PhD program (equates to a Ph.D. in CS+first 2 years Med School).
