Tribute to Ted O’Neill

Ths is a tribute to Ted O’Neill, who played a key role in the development of health informatics technology today.  At the National Bureau of Standards, he helped bring the American National Standard MUMPS to reality.  Moving on the the Veterans Administration, he started the office that became the Decentralized Hospital Computer Program, that is now called VistA.

I shot this video at an Underground Railroad Banquet in 2009, and pulled together some of the interviews to talk about Ted’s contributions.

Contact me if you are interested in helping out to build a larger collection of oral histories…
