Very interesting.

I went immediately to check it but it is not yet available.

It is of outmost interest to me.

Thank you

While I don't believe it is available online for download, you can probably get a copy by contacting them. The software was developed as part of a CMS funded grant. They keep enhancing the system. In addition to being deployed in several community clinics, I understand it is now operational and being used in Shepherd University's School of Nursing.

Thanks for starting the conversation Peter, the HealtheMe PHR project was actually developed by KRM, who I work for.  We are currently working to get through some architecture/debranding issues to get it into a release mode, and are leveraging some of the work we are doing on a project for IHS to rearchitect C32/C83 elements into the back-end.  We are aiming to load this into the OSEHRA framework shortly once we have gotten it to a distributable release, though it is currently in production in WV interfacing with RPMS, and has been interfaced to VistA in the past.  In the interim, as Peter mentioned we are also actively leveraging it for a few additional projects across agencies; for instance we are doing some modifications so it may be used as a case management utility for CHIP.

I'd be happy to demo/discuss, just send me an email.  I will also be at the WorldVistA meeting in a week if are available then.

Thanks;

-Matt

Thank you.

I am researching Automatic Ontology Enrichment and the Reasoning possibilities that can be developed from PHR knowledge retrieval.

Usually I am more comfortable with Java based frameworks so this sounds particularly promising to me. J

I will contact them to check any availability.

Yours truly

I come to you regarding the possibility of me providing some collaboration in your developments and to check the availability of using your open source framework in my research activities.

I am doing AI research in the area of Biomedical Ontologies enrichment and I have published articles regarding Knowledge Retrieval from HER (HL7) and from semi-structured free-text (SOAP framework). If possible I would like to explore HealtheMe to check the possibility of automated Ontology Population to function for development of CDS (Clinical Decision Support) tooling which can enhance the HealtheMe system.

Yours truly
