Ron would like to be known as a retired technologist. His career started as a Flight Surgeon and, after leaving the military, he started a family practice. PC’s were just being produced and Microsoft Windows was going to integrate everything. Ron wanted an electronic office and bought interest in a start-up software company in Calgary that made an Electronic Patient Record. As his family practice grew so did his software company. Over the next 20 years it grew into an international company and had him traveling across Canada and the US giving papers at many conferences. The topics ranged from patient management, lab integration, security, and data input.
Ron retired and sold his medical practice and other business interests, bought a 5th wheel and he and his wife traveled as “full timers” for two years. For a variety of reasons, they ended up in the Silveridge RV Resort in Mesa Arizona and bought a home without wheels. Ron serves as program director for the resort’s very active computer club that now has a membership of about 200. He loves technology and spends his spare time doing presentations at resorts in the east valley and teaching a variety of programs in his resort. He is a member of APCUG’s Speakers Bureau. At this time, all of his presentations are via Zoom.
