A 30-year legacy in health IT - The Afoundria Story
Our story begins in September of 1986, when Charles (Buddy) Owen, M.D. first dreamt of computers in emergency departments to serve doctors, nurses and patients.
Today, Dr. Owen is Afoundria's Chief Medical Informatics Officer, and his sketch in 1986 evolved into EmSTAT, an emergency department information system that is still in use across the U.S.
After planning, building and implementing EmSTAT in emergency departments throughout the country, Dr. Owen sold the technology. Fast forward to 2012, when three long-term business associates (Jon McBride, Luke Gilliam and Charles Owen, M.D.) joined forces to start Afoundria after years of growing large, successful healthcare information technology businesses.
In 2013, Afoundria bought back the license to run EmSTAT, returning the technology to its original home. Our co-founders' vision of creating solutions that lead the frontier of health information technology and improve healthcare still stands strong today with the development of ChartPath®, a best-in-breed clinical charting app, and the recent joining of the BlueHub Health team to help build out a patient-facing portal empowering patients to securely manage their health care record.
