By Bill Childs, Time really does fly when you're having fun. The story of how this magazine came to be actually begins in the 1960s. I was at Lockheed Missiles & Space Company in Sunnyvale, Calif., when a few adventurous entrepreneurs gathered to consider building a medical information system (MIS) and a business office system (BOS). At some point, I drew the short straw to head up the development of the financial information system. Actually, this set very well with me because our clinical team was sent off to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota in the dead of winter in 1967 to study the possibilities of an electronic medical record (EMR) and computerized physician order entry (CPOE) system, along with work-flow design and clinical process optimization.
