Dr. Jack Berdy, CEO & Chairman
In the 1960’s Jack Berdy did undergraduate work in microbiology at the University of Maryland. His interest in computers, however, led him to found On-Line Software International in 1969. In September 1982 the firm went public, and was soon one of the few software vendors listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
By 1991, On-Line Software was one of the United States’ largest software vendors, with annual revenues exceeding $100 million. The company offered three dozen packaged software products and employed over 700 people worldwide in seven domestic and five international offices. In August 1991 Computer Associates International, Inc. acquired On-Line Software.
Though successful in the high-technology arena, Jack Berdy’s interest in medicine never faded. In 1989 he went to medical school at George Washington University, even as he retained his management control of On-Line Software as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. Dr. Berdy then received his M.D. in 1993 from Mount Sinai School of Medicine of New York.
In parallel to his residency, leading to his Board Certification in Internal Medicine, Dr. Berdy founded Berdy Medical Systems Inc. which developed SmartClinic and implemented SmartClinic at many medical facilities throughout the United States. In 2004 Berdy Medical Systems was sold to a company on the American Stock Exchange, and the SmartClinic Electronic Health Record was subsequently re-acquired by Dr. Berdy now under the corporate banner of VIP Medicine, LLC.
Now other physicians can leverage Dr. Berdy’s business expertise and technical insight with a new generation of clinical information systems products.
VIP Medicine’s blend of clinical, technological, and management expertise stems from the unique background of its founder, Dr. Jack Berdy.
The company was founded on the premise that the creation of a truly worthy product can occur only after a clear understanding of user needs is achieved. To this end, the company devoted year’s of effort to analyzing the complex legal, regulatory, and environmental issues surrounding healthcare informatics requirements. It conducted extensive market research, including interviews with physicians, nurses, medical record personnel, administrators, payroll and other healthcare constituents, to gain insight into their data processing requirements.
