Jay works on systems and software development projects. His experience includes application design and development, primarily to facilitate entry of forms and measurement of program outcomes, and maintenance and technical assistance of multi-user and county and statewide Management Information System (MIS) applications. Jay is currently involved in several .NET programming projects at CHSR, most significantly the Healthy Families New York (HFNY) web-based application. Jay is primarily responsible for the reporting interface and features and for the database schema used by the application, which also includes conversion of the previous FoxPro-based system’s data. He is also the resident utilities guy, which entails maintenance and upgrades of the Subversion source code repository and related tools. He is the chief web crawler for jQuery and other Javascript libraries used in our application framework.

Jay provides phone and internet-based technical support for statewide users of the MIS. He also works on the Healthy Families New Jersey FamSys web-based data collection system. Previously, he was involved in the Albany County, New York System of Care Evaluation, assisting in the creation of several new features of the software created for the project. Prior to joining CHSR, Jay worked for a forensic CPA firm for five years and then switched careers to be employed by two IT/Database consulting firms in New York City for almost fifteen years.

Jay received his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Pace University. He has participated in various training and self-study activities to keep abreast of the latest technology in the application development field.
