Doug Bulleit, Executive Director, The FHIRBlocks Project

Following twelve years as BellSouth’s Chief Strategist, Mr. Bulleit left with the AT&T merger to assume the role of founder and Managing Partner at Disintegrated Communication Systems (DCS), LLC: an advisory firm focused upon eCommerce and healthcare consumerism. More recently, DCS was dissolved into The FHIRBlocks Project: an open-source consortia exploring the convergence of mHealth application interface standards (e.g., HL7’s emerging FHIR standard) with permissioned blockchain-enabled Trust models.

Before BellSouth, Mr. Bulleit founded ICS-TranstexT®. ICS focused upon early packet data network applications and was, ultimately, acquired by BellSouth to form the nucleus of its Advanced Networks Group. ICS had previously been spun out from Heery International, the South’s largest engineering firm, and it was there that Mr. Bulleit was awarded the first of his six issued patents.

Subsequent to undergraduate studies in electrical and systems engineering at Purdue and Georgia Tech, Mr. Bulleit later completed the Executive Programs at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, MIT’s Sloan Business School and Singularity University at NASA Ames. He now lectures at GaTech on blockchain technology and has served on the Boards of Atlanta’s Resource Opportunity Center, the Atlanta Metro Group, Point B Communications, Atrica Networks, and the Brookwood Group as well as the University of Georgia’s College of Arts and Sciences Board of Visitors.
