Vern - Director of Product Development

Development (San Diego Office)
Joined Update Software in 2000.  He attended his first computer class in 1968 using a CDC mainframe computer at the University of Minnesota.  He was drafted out of college to serve in the US Army during the Vietnam War.  After military service and a few years of working in the construction trades, he returned to college and obtained his Bachelors degree in Computer Science in 1981.  In the early 1980’s he worked as an independent computer consultant on some of the very first PCs (e.g. Tandy TRS-80, Osborne1, DEC PDP11, and the original IBM PC).  In 1983, he joined National Medical Computer Services as a software engineer, developing software for radiology and anesthesiology physician practice management systems.  These projects covered billing and insurance claims processing, automated medical records, and radiology image management using mainframe, mini, and PC computers including Data General, ATT System V, IBM PC AT, IBM 360-390, IBM Systems 34-36-38, and IBM AS/400.  In the 1990’s, Vern worked for Reynolds & Reynolds Company on a project management team responsible for the development of a new medical practice management system using the combined development staff from five offices located across the country from San Diego to Ohio, and off-shore in India.  In 1997, Vern became the Vice President of Software Development for Radiology Information Systems at Infocure Corporation managing software programming development in six satellite offices scattered across the country from San Diego to Florida. 

After spending a couple of years constantly traveling from one coast to the other managing projects for a combined staff of more than 60, Vern decided to move  on and use his development experience in a more sane, but still challenging environment at Update Software.
