Physician's Computer Company 

Published October 14, 2009 at 2:48 p.m.

When the American Academy of Pediatrics needs help sorting out 50-plus immunization registries around the country, they call Physician's Computer Company in Winooski. Since 1983, PCC has developed, delivered and supported practice-management software to pediatricians in an effort to "remove all the obstacles to keep them from practicing medicine," according to manager Chip Hart. Plus, the push to adopt Electronic Health Records has brought more work to PCC.

PCC began when a local pediatric practice was told by its original computer company (a pre-IDX, IDS) that it couldn't be bothered to generate the dreaded "school forms" that parents need for school every year. One of the nurses in the practice suggested that her high-school-aged son knew a lot about computers, and he was hired to find a system to replace IDS. John Canning's after-school, pre-dotcom idea has become a 45-employee, $5 million company right here in Vermont.
