PedDrugDose was written by me, Bernard Pegis, MD.  I first began writing software in 1982 on the TI 99-4/A computer.  I took a short course in programming BASIC on the Apple IIe a few years later. In 1988, I worked briefly at IBM and started working on PCs at that time.  While an undergraduate student at Thomas Aquinas College (TAC), I took a job in their development office to help update their database systems.  After graduating from TAC, while doing my premedical studies at Ventura College, I worked essentially full time as the Associate Director of Computer Systems at TAC, computerizing other offices, redesigning multiple systems and writing countless ad hoc programs.  In 1998 I started medical school at Saint Louis University School of Medicine and developed our class's website and also created multiple software programs for facilitating online teaching and evaluation of medical curricula.  I started my residency in Family Medicine at Mercy Family Medicine in St. Louis, MO in 2002 and continued developing software, though my focus moved from medical education to preventing errors and speeding up documentation.  When I graduated from my residency in 2005, the first version of PedDrugDose had been adopted by the residency and I'd written my first several versions of medical encounter documentation software.  I began practicing in Racine, WI and found it difficult to develop software due to time constraints.  I was, however, able to develop TabletNotes - an as yet unreleased program which I used every day for documenting my encounters with patients with minimal typing using a Tablet PC.  Someday I hope to incorporate this as an optional add-on to existing EMRs.  I completely re-wrote PedDrugDose during this time as well.  I moved with my family (my lovely wife and four adorable children) to Front Royal, VA in 11/2008 into an environment which is ideal for raising a family and a practice (Skyline Family Practice) which is very supportive of technological advances for patient care.
