I am very sorry to say the course did not fill. Those of you who signed up
will be getting a refund unless you wish to attend one of the other course
instead, and then we can move the funds to cover the other course.

The two other courses are a GT.M Administration and Operations course and Rob
Tweeds EWD.js course.

Let me know what you want to do if you signed up.

LAST CHANCE - Greg Kreis to offer the VistA Foundations Course before the VistA Community Meeting

I hesitate to send this out because I don't want you all getting three copies
of each of my email again, but tomorrow is the last day to sign up for this
course and there are not yet enough people signed up to hold the course. Last
time this happened, we ended up with 18 taking the course when it initially
looked like not enough would sign up. Don't let this opportunity slip by
because you got distracted and didn't register in time! If the course does
not fill, your registration fees will be refunded so you have nothing to lose.

Using CPRS with VistA

A new installation of FOIA VistA with the CPRS GUI is enough to get started learning VistA, but not to actually use the system to record patient medical data. There are a number of additional components required, as well as significant configuration procedures, in order to achieve an application that is clinically useful. Specifically, the following data items are not available in a freshly installed FOIA VistA instance:

  • test patients
  • care provider profiles
  • pharmacy formulary (Drug File)
  • locations (facilities and clinics)

The OSEHRA Education Wiki

The OSEHRA Education wiki enables the OSEHRA community to write documents collaboratively, using a simple markup language and a web browser. A single page in a wiki website is referred to as a "wiki page", while the entire collection of pages, which are usually well interconnected by hyperlinks, is "the wiki". A wiki is essentially a database for creating, browsing, and searching through information.
