Robert L. Missroon, Jr., DSS
Management Solutions, which developed a radiology decision support system, and Informatix Laboratories Corporation, which specialized in billing and accounts receivables software for Native American healthcare facilities. Now, DSS is the premier integrator of commercial software with VistA, and is implementing customized versions for Tennessee’s public health system, New York’s mental health system, the Idaho mental health system and the Rutgers University health system in New Jersey. DSS’ workforce has grown to nearly 500 employees, primarily in Palm Beach County, as well as the company’s offices in Tampa and Atlanta. “Palm Beach County has a large, wellqualified IT workforce,” said Missroon. “The education system here is very solid. We have hired many recent graduates of the area’s colleges and universities, and many of our managers have been
promoted from entry-level positions. Having dataintensive research institutions like Scripps Florida and Max Planck Florida Institute raises Palm Beach County’s profile in health IT as well as the life sciences.” Looking ahead, DSS expects to keep growing as it reaches out to new markets. Missroon said that public health representatives from Europe and the Middle East expressed interest in the VistA system at HIMSS 2016, the recent Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society conference in Las Vegas. “The global public health market is underserved by health IT companies, and our system would fit their needs very well,” he said. “With 25 years of proven experience, talented teams, and the innovative technology to broadly connect information and functionality across diverse systems, organizations and communities, our company has a very bright future.”
