  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 […]

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.

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.

I had a great discussion with Dr. Bill Crounse, Director of Worldwide Health at Microsoft about their direction and focus on healthcare initiatives.  I’ve followed Bill’s blog for about a year and his insight into the ways Microsoft is innovating in healthcare is insightful.  He mentioned working with Robert Scoble, Microsoft’s former blogger extrodionare, and […]

Apple is very innovative with the iPhone but that gap won’t last long with features like this taking hold in mobile devices and an army of open source developers providing the catalyst for new and interesting features.

SDK downloaded

10, Jun 2008

Of all people to convince me to download an SDK my wonderful wife thought it would be cool to develop an application for the iPhone. Now perhaps she got caught up in all the activity surrounding Steve Job’s keynote at WWDC ’08 this year but I figured why not download the SDK and try my […]

Programming Itch

26, May 2008

I’ve got the programming itch again… For years I’ve done development on and off mostly for personal use. I created my first official application for an academic medical center in Houston a couple of years ago. It cleaned up a pharmacy database inside the EMR and updated the entries with a third party catalog of […]

Apple’s iPhone certainly has one of the best mobile web browsing experience on the market today.  What does having a mobile version of Safari in your pocket mean to web developers?  Despite Apple’s best efforts in providing an uncompromising solution for mobile web browsing it means having yet another development platform to deal with.   Much […]
