TDS - Makers of STAT!Ref

Fast Answers, for Healthcare Professionals For Over 28 Years

Teton Data Systems (TDS), a privately held company based in Jackson, Wyoming, was founded by Dr. Richard Sugden in 1987 to make healthcare reference material available electronically. For more than two decades, the company has continued to provide healthcare professionals with innovative, electronic information products and services. As we have advanced along with technology, some things remain the same; our unsurpassed search engine, our great people and our competitive pricing.

The STAT!Ref Story...

In 1987, Dr. Sugden's colleague from Big Piney, Wyoming–an oil and gas town of about 200 people–called for a consult on a pregnant patient from Connecticut with some unique symptoms.

Although he suspected Lyme disease, he didn't know the best course of treatment. Researching this issue took hours. Knowing there was a better way to find information, Dr. Sugden wrote a program to make Scientific American Medicine searchable on a Mac and made it available on CD-ROMs. These were the humble beginnings of STAT!Ref. Every year, more titles were added, CDs became DVDs and then an Intranet version was created and that evolved into STAT!Ref Online as it is today.
