He is an American extremely rich person, and the CEO and organizer of Epic Systems, a medical services programming organization situated in Wisconsin. Faulkner established Epic Systems in 1979, with the first name of Human Services Computing.

Faulkner, a software engineer herself, has kept on filling in as the CEO of the $3.3 billion organization subsequent to establishing America's driving clinical record programming supplier, Epic, in a Wisconsin cellar with 1/2 representatives. Since the organization was established, the mission "to assist individuals with getting, assist with peopling stay well, and assist people in the future with being better" has remained something very similar. Epic as of now upholds the clinical records of 250 million patients in the United states, or around 66% of the nation's populace.

Starting at 2021, with a couple of more years until Faulkner turns 80 years of age, she has said that she has no designs to resign. There has been no naming of a replacement and none of her three youngsters work at Epic. Faulkner chose to part her stock into casting a ballot shares so they couldn't be sold, and they have gone into a trust that is constrained by her relatives and representatives. The nonvoting offers will be left to the Roots and Wings establishment that was set up with her better half, Gordon.

The organization's greatest arrangement was in 2004, with the three-year project with Kaiser Permanente costing $4 billion.
