Just kicked off the Texas Regional HIMSS conference in Austin, TX.

March 16th will mark one year since we generated our first formal wireframe comp for what has now become a very robust enterprise application for physicians and their clinical staff. This journey through building an initial prototype, development of a solid service oriented architecture, building the project, analyst and development teams, generating a solid user experience, engaging our customers and more importantly engaging everyone in a new agile methodology has been nothing short of an amazing journey to which I’m very proud of what we have all accomplished. As we approach formal implementation of a project kicked off just one year ago I would like to recognize some great vendors who helped us along our journey… Xby2, Seamgen, and Cynergy Systems and especially my development staff at WellMed who kicked us off in this new agile development effort.

Our January San Antonio HIMSS Chapter Lunch-And-Learn was a great success and we had another great turnout. The board is always looking to improve your chapter so please let us know your feedback by e-mailing us your comments and suggestions.

This past week started one of many future events for the local San Antonio HIMSS Chapter. Our speaker, Bill Phillips, CIO of University Health System gave a very informative speech and real-world take on EMR deployments. Many thanks to Bill for starting us off on a great foot.
