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. Thanks

GT.M Adminstration & Operations Course January 14-16 at Regenstrief in Indianapolis

The course will immediately follow the VistA Community Meeting which is
being held at Regenstrief. The link to the meeting information is
11-13.http://worldvista.org/Conferences/32nd_VistA_Community_Meeting

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.

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%20Wo...
and get the latest version (0.9 as of today).

Wolfgang could take this online course:

https://www.udemy.com/getting-started-with-ewdjs-on-linux/?couponCode=we...

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)

Colleagues,

Please see attached slidedeck presented by OSEHRA Board Member and Senior Advisor to the Director, VA Innovation Initiative (VAi2), Mike O’Neill (SES) at the recent Defense Strategies Institute DOD/VA iEHR Summit in Alexandria, Virginia on 15 May 2012.

In it, Mr. O'Neill describes:

   *  How the VA Innovation Initiative is being used to Identify, Develop, and Test New Solutions to VA’s Top Priorities

   *  Why the VA Decided to Pursue a New Open Source Model?

"The VistA Ecosystem: Current Status and Future Directions", October, 2010, Institute for Software Research, Carnegie Mellon University

Colleagues,

Please see attached, an excellent analysis of the VistA ecosystem with recommendations, based on case studies of succssful open source communities, for building an effective VistA based development community going forward.  

Grateful acknowledgements are offered to the authors James Herbsleb, Claudia MüllerBirn and W. Ben Towne.

Your comments, reactions and suggestions, based on these findings, are strongly encouraged.

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.
