David Gardner is a communications professional with over 20 years of experience working in the domains of Digital Media, the World Wide Web, and more recently, eHealth and Social Media.
Starting with a background in science and technology, David utilized his creative skills to become a video and multimedia producer for IBM Corporation, producing content for a wide variety of news, information and marketing mediums.
In 1994, he led a grass-roots team of marketers and engineers in creating one of IBM’s first Internet websites (www.chips.ibm.com) and a website on the IBM internal network, when, frustrated by colleagues referring to it as the “internal Internet,” he coined the term “intranet” to describe the website and internal network.
David moved into Healthcare in 2005 when he became All Children’s Hospital’s first eHealth director. David built the eHealth department into an award winning team providing Web-based solutions for the hospital’s various audiences and business needs.
