Waiting in line is one of the many memorable events at WWDC. I’ve met several people from all over the world.

  In less than 24 hours, the first Apple event in at least 6 months will be underway.  There are a lot of eyes on Apple given their incremental product releases.  Rumors abound about what will be unveiled however it seems a safe bet given the signs that are posted in the Moscone center that […]

Certified ScrumMaster

20, Dec 2011

ScrumMaster training is a solid foundation on the fundamentals of Scrum and the process of product management and development in an agile environment.

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an often misunderstood concept even among the ranks of IT professionals. While many SOA initiatives have manifested and exposed internal business logic in the form of web services the approach for SOA is actually very non-technical and is rooted in a deep understanding of the business and strategic goals and involves an ever evolving process of continuous improvement and refinement. This makes the approach both strategic and operationally focused. In this post I will outline what I feel are some critical components necessary for a successful SOA-based project.

Book Review: REWORK

23, May 2011

Rework offers a refreshing series of essays covering a variety of topics many startups and nascent entrepreneurs would be wise to follow.

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.

Service Oriented Architecture has enabled us to quickly embrace change in the mobile space. The iPads have not been out an entire year yet we are able to quickly consume the core secure EMR services built into our flagship Care Delivery Platform and push data into the hands of providers using a very connected, very mobile device with a fundamentally different user interface. By takin the time to develop and invest in a service oriented architecture we’ve prototyped this iPad app in a fraction of the time it has taken to develop our RIA (Rich Internet Application) EMR.

Some big ideas come from asking pretty simple questions… As it turns out the inspiration and vision for the development of an innovative Care Delivery Platform at WellMed was born out of necessity.  A necessity to accurately and efficiently deliver timely information about patients health status to caregivers at the point of care and document […]

Just because you can run your desktop app on a mobile devices doesn’t mean you should.

My issues with mobile computing in healthcare revolve around technologies that get in the way of providers and clinicians doing their core job which is attending to patients and not fumbling through hundreds of check boxes and interfaces designed to be used on a desktop.
