JOEL: ^IfMine Profile
Title: Founder and CEO
Bio: I come from a large family of brothers and sisters who grew up around the University of Toledo. I went to St. Francis de Sales High School, studied pre-med at Saint Meinrad Seminary and graduated cum laude with a B.A. in Chemistry from UT. I went to the Ross University School of Medicine in the West Indies and later, had a residency out of the Detroit Medical Center. After practicing as a family physician for about 15 years, I retired to form ^IfMine, a subsidiary to National Resources Management Systems.
^IfMine Project Highlight: Doc Notes
When did you get your first computer? My first computer was after doing residency at the age of 38. However, my early computer use came in my mid-thirties during medical school where I simply looked up lab data for the hospitalized patient. After medical school came residency at the Detroit Medical Center, where I used computers for patient lab results and dictation summaries for the discharge of patients.
Describe your early experiences with the Internet: During my free time in residency, I aggressively did my own investigative research entering searches to topics with the service of over 5000 journals on an expressive program of MEDLINE. After residency, I was in private practice and used my personal computer for writing scripts as full length motion pictures and simple email correspondence.
What do you do when you’re not using tech? Most of my free time is spent having family fun with my autistic boy and four Italian Greyhounds or making my yard into a interesting natural park.
