Michael M. Segal MD, PhD, Founder and Chief Scientist. Dr. Segal did his undergraduate work at Harvard and his MD and PhD at Columbia, where his thesis project outlined rules for the types of chemical synapses that will form in a nervous system. After his residency in pediatric neurology at Columbia, he moved to Harvard Medical School, where he joined the faculty and developed the microisland system for studying small numbers of brain neurons in culture. Using this system, he developed a simplified model of epilepsy, work that won him national and international young investigator awards, and set the stage for later work on the molecular mechanism of attention deficit disorder. Dr. Segal has a long history of interest in computers, and patterned the SimulConsult software after the way that experienced clinicians actually think about diagnosis. He is on the Electronic Communication Committee of the Child Neurology Society is one of the medical advisors of the Periodic Paralysis Association, and has been on the Scientific Program Committee of the American Medical Informatics Association.

The impetus, to go back to your original question, was that our founder, Dr Michael Segal, was in training in pediatric neurology at Columbia Medical School in pediatric neurology and he found that it was already a problem remembering everything that was known then. Therefore, he thought he would write some software.
Dr Segal came back and said, "You are absolutely right, it definitely does not work.
Dr. Segal wrote the first prototype of how Dr. Yaboa actually does his diagnosis.
However, as Dr. Segal looked around he said, "No doctors have computers. Therefore, he put the project aside and joined the faculty of Harvard Medical School. There he saw patients and did research in epilepsy. Eventually, with the introduction of the Internet and with the encouragement of one of the leaders in informatics, Dr Isaac Kohane, Dr. Segal decided to refocus on this effort. He rewrote the software to be accessible from the web. Dr. Segal started on it part time and eventually moved to full time and the product was released in 2006.
