Eureka Clinical Computing, Inc. is a medical software technology company founded in the Ozark Mountains of Northwest Arkansas. We had an idea: harness the power of computing to help doctors master the evolving body of knowledge required to practice best medicine. We've created a first-of-its-kind intelligent medical diagnostic assistant with a user experience that is seamless and intuitive. Our aim is to improve diagnostic accuracy and efficiency, reduce errors, and empower both patients and physicians worldwide.
Flashback to 1977. The Apple II goes on sale; it’s 4 years before the IBM PC debuts; and my first year of med school. My dream is to master medicine. I spend my days poring over textbooks and journals. To my chagrin, I soon realize the knowledge base is too vast for the human brain to store and process optimally. And so a new dream is born: I will harness the emerging power of microcomputers to help doctors master the evolving body of knowledge required to practice best medicine.
Upon graduation from med school in 1980, I began to study human intelligence, and to explore neural networks and artificial intelligence with my friend and mentor, Dr. Stan Franklin, founder of the Cognitive Computing Research Group at the University of Memphis. I also continued to pursue my clinical training and practice—so critical to finding the path to computer-aided diagnosis.
It is only within the past decade or so that hardware, software, AI, and internet technologies have advanced enough to enable truly effective computer-aided diagnosis. To this end, my wife and partner, Alicia, and I founded Eureka Clinical Computing. The long and winding road to fulfill my dream is finally coming to fruition. Our intelligent medical assistant for physicians and patients, MidasMed.com is now available online as a beta test release.
Dan Jones, M.D., President & CEO
Dan Jones, M.D., is a physician and neuroscientist, board certified in Emergency Medicine, with 25 years of primary care practice. In the late 1980's Dan developed a multi-layer neural network for diagnosing appendicitis. In 1991 Dan founded Challenger Corp (MedChallenger), the first to provide personal computer training, self-assessment, and boards preparation for physicians. To this date, Challenger continues to lead with a broad array of programs for healthcare practitioners and medical students. In 2007 Dan developed a tablet app for patient history entry using real-time handwriting recognition and automatic electronic medical record composition. The system was successfully deployed and used for years in thousands of patient encounters in his practice.
Alicia Jones, Ph.D. (Electrical Engineering), is an R&D engineer with 20 years experience in medical informatics; m-commerce; wireless network architecture evolution, signaling, interoperability and services; and channel coding, equalization and signal processing. Alicia has worked on numerous design, deployment, and strategic projects. Previously with Eureka Walk-In Clinic, SBC Labs, Mobileum, NextWave Telecom, and GTE Labs.
