Dr Jones received his MD from Stanford in 1969. He spent the next 26 years at the University of Chicago where he and his colleagues developed the Centennial Patient Care Workstation, a model for allowing clinicians to enjoy the benefits of new information technology.
In 1995, Dr. Jones joined Oacis Healthcare Systems, where he focused more deeply on the clinical functionality of applied informatics. At Oacis, he had the opportunity to work closely with some of the founding members of the HL7 organization. Understanding how clinicians communicate with one another led to an appreciation of how the standardization of clinical information fosters more rapid and accurate communication.
In 2000, Dr. Jones joined Oracle where, as Chief Medical Officer, he provided the clinical leadership for Oracle’s Healthcare Strategy group. Dr. Jones worked with provider organizations, payor organizations, academic institutions, healthcare informatics standards organizations, government representatives and pharmaceutical firms in 34 countries. He participated in the creation of white papers for the European Commission and chaired the Technical Committee for the Interoperability Consortium.
In 2006, Dr. Jones co-founded Tolven Inc., which was formed to bring to market a consumer-centric, open source, integrated electronic platform for medical information that promotes clinician-consumer collaboration.
