Comparison of file convergence for 4 VistAs

I took the file listings from each of Conor's 3 FMQL comparisons and melded them into a single spreadsheet, showing which files each version contains, as well as the FM number each is using for the files. Perhaps this will give us a start on which files represent "core" OSEHRA VistA. I color-coded the non-FOIA Vistas - where a file is used by 2 or 3 of the non-FOIA versions, I tried to combine the colors to represent that combination. The columns to the right are just for visual cues as to which versions have mismatched FM numbers (a '0' in the column indicates mismatch), and the far right column indicates convergence.

Comparison of file convergence for 4 VistAs

thank Jenny. Spreadsheets definitely have some advantages over web pages.
One thing though: as I mailed back to Mike, I'm not sure we should see
these VistAs as peers. It's the diff between FOIA and other VistAs that
matters. FOIA's more up to date. So one report with a list of FOIA files
only and then columns of whether other VistAs had them or not and if so,
what counts they had is probably most useful.

The counts by the way are only useful for concept/config files like 50.68,
VA product file. They mean nothing but population for patient-data files
like Patient (2). Ideally, the baseline should have NO patient data
population: only concept files should be populated.
