  • Blog Post: Let’s get physical…

    Since my last post I have come to realise that I cannot really get much further with the work I am doing without a better understanding of .NET development.

  • Blog Post: e-Referral Pattern: Roles and responsibilities of the actors involved

    To recap: In a previous blog post I introduced the concept of the e-Referral pattern - as an atomic structure.

The first thing we are going to deal with is what exactly a HIT Commodity is. Quite simply "A HIT commodity is a cost-effective capability that provides a new level of convenience...
  • Blog Post: Where to from here?

    I have 2 questions for you: "Why did we start using information technology in healthcare?" and "Is there any proof that information technology is actually proving any benefit to the provision of care in health?" The answers to these questions should be pretty simple, you would think, but when you...
