Paul Bastide

A problem solving and inventive developer focused on leading software teams to develop great software. I am currently architecting, building, maintaining and enhancing a resilient and compliant healthcare data platform. I am energetically focused on mentoring early career employees to find and attain their goals.

With twenty years of experience in the Information Technology field, I have had roles which give me a perspective of deep technical enablement of customers, supporting customers, integrating systems-of-systems, and high-performance development. These roles have provided me with an outlet for problem solving and implementing solutions to complex software engineering problems.

On my current project, I lead development of a strategic healthcare data platform – GxP practices, GDPR, HIPAA, IBM WebSphere Liberty, J2EE, DB2 Warehouse, HBase, Kafka, Jenkins, Git – to answer complicated healthcare problems with near real-time FHIR data.

I am also an enthusiastic inventor with over 250 filed patent applications and over 100 granted patent applications. I am a recognized IBM Master Inventor who fosters intellectual property creation, evaluates hundreds of disclosures and mentors many inventors.

In my spare time, I travel, snap photographs, hike mountains and follow the #RedSox.
