Educational Goals

I’ve spent the last 3 days following the Amazon Re: Invent conference. There’s plenty there and Amazon has given us “credit” to use AWS services. That said, most of what we need can be done 100% in our own (and other cloud services) as well. So, some thought needs to be put into the most efficient selection of services.

Thanks. I frankly don’t know enough to determine if hosting on AWS has any advantages over what you are currently doing. Perhaps, at some point having a platform with multiple services, like AWS, will be compelling

@tony – see #infra on the chat – I was about to stand up a kubernetes cluster but wasn’t sure if instead you wanted me to bake an AMI instead.

Open Health News just published an article on LibreHealth EHR for education:

Interesting article today in Health Data Management by the ONC National Coordinator on interoperability. Overall, the US gets a grade of C- but there are some policy changes down the road which might help

FYI. Had an extended phone call with Dr. Peter Elkin from the University of Buffalo. He was interested in LibreHealth EHR and has access to de-identified patients, but like so many academic centers, they are terrified that the data could be re-identified. I don’t buy that but this is the end result of HIPAA

There’s a problem that is seriously grant worthy. True, realistic, synthetic patient’s. I’m working with a new company that can help with this and with the NLP concepts and wants to contribute. I’ll introduce you all after the New Year.

@tony That’s great. I look forward to hearing what you have learned
