Chatziaggelidis Iordanis


At age of fourteen I began working with my parents at our stores and international exhibitions; We own a wholesale and retail proprietary brand of woman clothing with retail chain shops and showrooms. Mary Lides Co.
I decided to go to medical school in Italy, (opposing my parents “decision” to be an architeckt, as many of my family members are) at the University of Bologna, where they teach for the last 1000 years the hardway, where I completed all my basic science medical classes. I needed to move back to Greece to be closer to my family, where I assisted with my technical, organizational and computer problem solving skills. Thus, I transferred to the University of Crete medical school thru a competivive process where I completed my studies. I was placed in a waiting list to start my residency in Ophthalmology, at the specialized Ophthalmiatrion Athens Eye Hospital, one of the oldest in Europe (established in 1843). In the mean time, I worked for my family business as an international buyer, travelling all over Asia, for product quality control and sample approval, while I was studing and waiting my turn for starting the residency in ophthalmology. As a resident , I was always happy to examine patients even after hours , and always prompt to help my collegues in other departments , when needed.


I began using PCs at the age of 8, with the legendary Amstrad 6128, where I preferred “playing” with LOGO and GWBasic rather than games. I Composed my first pc from parts at the age of 14. Since then i use technology in everyday clinical practice, from EMRs(Electronic Medical Records ) , to PIM ( Personal Information Managers ) and e-Books on clinical yards. My personal milestone was the development of DataEye, a custom made EMR under GNU(Open) license , from the experience obtained during my pre-residency attachment at University Hospital “Atticon” under the supervision of Prof. Vergados. I recently brought the DataEye to the iOS (Apple iPad & iPhone ) platform. I created many databases for use in everyday practice from operations logbooks to Laser ( YAG , PRP ) logbooks. I concived, constructed and patetent a remote controlled slit lamp, as a response to the needs of the Greek Islander population. I made other inventions in an effort to increase the services provided to the patients.


I grew up in Athens Greece, treveling a lot with my family for business worldwide., from small industrial villages of China , to the 5th Ave of New York. I lived four years in Italy, six months in Spain. Since 2006, I have spent almost a year and half in China. As a resident in a specialized hospital I had the opportunity to examine great variation of the Greek population, from Politicians, Bussinesmen and Entrepranuers to very old islanders, chronic unemployed and immigrants. I recognize the universal human need for healthcare, expectations of patients regarding service providers and the variations in practice among varius cultures and social classes.


I have a natural tendancy to simplify and optimize operations. I always try to find the most cost effective solution to problems. I have a scientific approach to problems , supporting my opinions with the latests trends in Operations Managent , Organizational Behavior, Finance & Accounting, Service Marketing and in Ophthalmology. I acquired this theoritical knowledge at the Univeristy of Liverpool Profesional on line MBA , and i had the opprtunity to implement the theory at a real world productive environment and in my hospital.


I do not have illusive expectations regarding the proffesion of Ophtlamology. Profit was never my consultant. All I want is to provide the best services to my patients.

Vision for me, is the most advanced and elaborate biological system, a interface between life as a form of existence and the universe.
I have an intrisicate admiral for the people with acquired vision problems and impaired vision that continue to live their lifes, and I want to support them with all my scientific weaponry.
