Alan Houser Appointed Project Director at C/NET Solutions

After 30 years with C/NET Solutions, Barry Gordon, founder and Project Director, retired on June 30, 2012. The last 30 years have been a wonderful success and all of us at C/NET Solutions wish Barry well as he spends more time with family and grandchildren and pursues his passion for photography. Alan Houser, our former manager for Special Projects, was selected to succeed Barry as Project Director and has been learning the details of managing C/NET Solutions from Barry since March.

C/NET Solutions could not ask for a more knowledgeable or experienced person to step into the Project Director position. Alan began his career with C/NET Solutions back in 1984 when he was tapped by Barry to write the CanSur/Net software user manual and design a training module to learn the software by using it. It was a natural fit for Alan as he had previously taught statistical and data concepts at the University of California San Francisco Tumor Registry Training Program, where he was statistician and database manager. In 1987, he joined Barry as a programmer for three years where he wrote the first online edits that validated a case while you were abstracting it.

Since rejoining the C/NET Solutions programming staff in 1995, Alan developed the online and SmartHelp features in CNExT, the MP/H Help Tool, and others, worked to improve the NCDB Call for Data interface as the Call itself changed over time, designed the SSDI Matching program, and managed the Windows upgrade of the CDC Edits Tools used by all state and national registries to create and update edit sets. He has also worked with national groups on edits development and collaborative staging, bringing the perspective of the hospital data collector into an environment dominated by central registry end users.

Alan’s depth of understanding of cancer registry work and his ability to innovate software tools and features that make cancer data entry accurate and faster will serve both our staff and our customers well as he assumes his new leadership position at C/NET Solutions.
