J.D. Keith
vxVistA Network Architect, DSS Inc.

Web site

J.D. Keith comes from a background in network computing, telecommunications, and ERP applications and support. I joined DSS in the Spring of 2009, after serving for 3 years as the IT/ERP Support Manager at Nicklaus Golf Equipment Company in West Palm Beach, FL. Extensive experience in IT and Systems Computing/Management across many platforms from Mainframe Systems and Wide Area Networks to Desktop/PC and peripheral support, along with extensive IT procurement and budget management, experience in selection and implementation of both hardware and software systems across many industries and management methodologies.

Among my hallmark projects I can count both forklift and upgrade implementation projects from 5 to 50,000 users and have successfully managed groups and teams in completing projects of varied size and complexity.

My nearly two decades of systems analysis and direct experience with a broad spectrum of hardware and software species enables me to assess situations and circumstances quickly in order to properly design and configure network computing systems to support scalability and operational efficiency, as well as to manage and maintain a budgetary constraint perspective when necessary for providing cost effective solutions in systems implementations.

Extensive research, reading, and daily interaction with staff members at DSS have enabled me to assimilate volumes of information specific to Health Care IT in order to support vxVistA-OS EHR systems, assist Research and Development in resolving ongoing issues, and establish procedures for regular management, support, and maintenance of the hardware and software used in delivering vxVistA-OS for clients hosting their own vxVistA-OS platform and vxVistA ASP hosted services.
