Stephen E. Beller, PhD is clinical psychologist, practitioner, researcher, software inventor, and CEO/ President of National Health Data Systems, Inc. Dr. Beller’s life goal is to work with others to help improve the health and wellbeing of all people. Toward that end, he has spent the past 25 years in creative pursuits, including inventing unique software systems, writing about the healthcare crisis and cures, and developing close personal and professional bonds with fine individuals across the globe. Dr. Beller has been focusing on enhancing electronic health records (EHRs) to maximize their usefulness for all types of clinicians in all healthcare disciplines and settings. His efforts include enabling EHRs to (a) supply patient centered cognitive support[i]; (b) promote whole person integrated care[ii] that links sick-care with well-care (prevention) and biomedical care with psychological care; (c) deploy a low-cost cyberarchitecture that connects everyone via asynchronous, pub/sub, store & forward, node-to-node mesh networks; and (d) provide a novel, time/money/resource-conserving way to store, share and render lifetimes of health data using pairs of automated spreadsheet templates that generate, exchange, consume and render encrypted delimited data files. He is currently involved in activities devoted to consumer empowerment, continuous improvement of care quality and efficiency using evolving evidence-based guidelines, international efforts to improve the health and well-being of the elderly and impoverished, establishment of cost-effective software architectures using disruptive technology, and supporting first responders and trauma department staff in disaster situations.
