Some events in Boston next week

I'll be in Cambridge next week to attend the O'Reilly Health Foo Camp.   This is a very interesting group of folks collected by O'Reilly Publishers who have a very strong interest in Open Source.  It is also being supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Pioneer Fund.  This is an Open Space "unconference" model, unimaginably far removed from the many "death by Powerpoint" presentations I've sat through in Washington, so it should be a fun, creative time.  I plan to propose a session on Open Vis

The unexpected bump in the road...

We previously told the community that our goal was to submit our unit tests, functional tests, scripts, and refactored Problem List code in early May.  

This original schedule slipped slightly when we encountered problems with transactions in the GTM environment for our unit and functional tests. We have been able to find workarounds for the unit tests, but are still investigating the functional tests.

OSEHRA President’s May Blog

 

OSEHRA is on the Move.  As we clear the hurdles of establishing Governance structure, clarifying Vision, implementing work Processes, and employing our IT Infrastructure and Development Tools, we simultaneously are preparing ourselves for the long run with the Open Source community.

April 2012 was a busy month.

Some comments on the original design of MailMan's server and patient addressability capability

At today's architecture call, folks talked about the Extended Action Protocols of VistA.  This reminded me of some of my original design goals for MailMan, which I thought I'd comment on here.  I don't know how this all relates to today's VistA platform, but here are my thoughts from days of yore...

Why we need to move away from the "Castle-and-drawbridge" architectural model.

On today's architecture call, someone mentioned that the North Chicago site had three different security domains - one each for DoD, VA, and Navy, requiring separate logons, and who-knows-whatever-else to make it work.  They have encoded three different "castles" within the system, each with its own "drawbridge" between it and the others.

This kind of design doesn't lead to triple the complexity, but rather it squares or cubes it with the number of sites involved.
