Bell served the US Army for seven years after graduating from the University of Nevada.

He was a founding member and CEO of the healthcare education software startup iCare Academic LLC, which was acquired in 2010 by Wolters Kluwer Health—a global healthcare publisher. Rebranded as Lippincott’s DocuCare and released in August 2012, the software is rapidly emerging as a market leader with more than 300 school adoptions, 17,000 student users, and 500 faculty users in the United States and Canada.

His second startup, E2 Medical Software, developed an iPhone application named E2 Calc, designed for anesthesia providers to rapidly and accurately calculate crucial information pertinent to patients undergoing surgery. E2 Calc was released in Apple’s App Store for worldwide sale in December 2011.
