Re: [education][architecture] GT.M Adminstration & Operations Course January 14-16 at Regenstrief in Indianapolis

Nancy, I wish I had time to go! I have to stay put and finish the NSF proposal. I can't even send Ohm, since he is not in the US as yet - FAU has sent him an invitation (he will be working half-time on a project with ARC devices, a medical devices company). I hope you have another meeting coming up where we can gain some hands on experience.

Initially, I understood this seminar to be "online"; recently, however, it will be held in Indianapolis?? I'm afraid I cannot take the time off to fly to the seminar, at this time. Cheers, K. M.

Wolfgang -- Although the course is not online, the course materials are online. The GT.M Acculturation Workshop is a series of self-paced exercises to teach yourself GT.M administration and operations. Go to https://sourceforge.net/projects/fis-gtm/files/GT.M%20Acculturation%20Workshop/ and get the latest version (0.9 as of today). If all you want to do is to set up GT.M, the gtminstall script downloads and installs the latest correct GT.M (32-or 64-bits) for your Linux installation.

Wolfgang could take this online course: https://www.udemy.com/getting-started-with-ewdjs-on-linux/?couponCode=website2 It includes the use of pre-built installers that will create a GT.M-based system for you Note however - the courses aren't about GT.M per se, but about EWD.js (which can work together with it) Rob On Tuesday, 24 November 2015 10:18:52 UTC, Nancy Anthracite wrote: > > Unfortunately, not, but the good news is you don't need a course to set up > GT.m for first use.

GT.M provides a tremendous breadth of functionality designed to to develop and deploy large scale applications. The GT.M Administration & Operations course provides training on setting up, managing, and troubleshooting GT.M environments. Registration is here: https://www.regonline.com/gtmadminvcm32 This is a very hands-on course. As the subject matter is empirical rather than theoretical, the emphasis in the course is on learning by doing under the guidance of the instructor, rather than learning by being taught by the instructor.

Whatever the host OS, we use virtual machines for the class because they're easier to crash and recover than real machines (each attendee will run as many as three virtual machines concurrently, something hard to accomplish with three real machines).

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.
