Dear Warner, I echo what everyone has said about the importance of the work of the DCI (and its predecessors), led by you and Howard. What you built in the 1970s and 1980s was far ahead of any other hospital information system—and, to my mind, is far ahead of many of the most commercially successful systems of the current day. What is most important is not the technological tour de force. What is most important is how much the system improved the lives of both patients and doctors. What you’ve done is amazing enough. More amazing is the person you are: intense, passionate and tireless in advocating what is best for others, and always putting that before any personal agenda. So many times I’ve wanted to bottle some of that, and drink it! Get well, my friend.
