Lessons learned from eMERGE: Mapping common Data Elements (DE)

The eMERGE (electronic MEdical Records and GEnomics:https://www.mc.vanderbilt.edu/victr/dcc/projects/acc/index.php/Main_Page)  network was funded by the NIH (NHGRI) to mine data from Electronic Health Records (EHRs) for mapping Phenotype-Genotype associations using large population data drawn from EHRs and biorepositories.

gridVista - capturing the encounter

I have done enterprise architecture work in both education and aircraft maintenance for the air force.  As we move toward a web-oriented world, I have seen a couple of interesting patterns that recur in both areas above that seem to occur in the medical arena as well.

In aircraft maintenance ‘it’ is where the mechanic meets the plane (and the parts…).  In education ‘it’ is where the student meets the teacher (and the curricula …).  In medical it is where the doctor meets the patient (and the prescription …).  To generalize, I will call this ‘it’ the encounter.

Interesting poll regarding use of Health eVet and Social Networks

 

Just ran across this article in Cardiology today http://www.cardiologytoday.com/view.aspx?rid=90637 

 Zulman and colleagues polled 18,741 patients who used a Web-based personal health record system, My HealtheVet, maintained by Veterans Affairs about their views on sharing access to their personal health records.

Next OSEHRA Development Tools Teleconference: Wednesday, December 21, 2011 3-4pm EST

The next web conference for the OSEHRA development tools group is scheduled for Wednesday, December 21, 2011 from 3:00pm to 4:00pm EST. In this call we will continue the exercise of illustrating the practical use of the Git repository, Gerrit code review, testing Dashboard and the Auto-Generated documentation. To facilitate this goal, a Virtual Machine has been configured with the support and collaboration of the OSEHRA Open Source community. We invite the attendees to the session to download this Virtual Machine from:

Video of discussion between Tom Munnecke and Ralph Johnson about Shearing Layers in refactoring

Here is a video transcript of a Skype conversation I had this morning with Ralph Johnson this morning about refactoring VistA.  I think that there are some fascinating ideas here about thinking about refactoring in layers, rather than a single lump, as well as the notion of creating a "semantic overlay" layer that would open VistA up to the rest of the Linked Data world (with appropriate security, as already expressed in VistA).
