Not much going on here

I'm working hard on the Connectathon and I noticed that the blog has no activity at all. I'm thinking od killing the whole idea of blogging, looks like its not for me :-)

I'll try it for one more month and if it doesn't work I'll close the blog.

EclipseCon paper

Maybe I'll write a server side paper for EclipseCon along with the Extreme Blue students...
Reading about it a bit :-)

Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics

From surgicenteronline

The CDC's National Center for Health Statistics has issued a new Health E-Stat, "Electronic Medical Record Use by Office-based Physicians: United States, 2005." The E-Stat is the latest look at the growing trend towards electronic record-keeping in the medical community. Some of the key findings in the report include:

-- Nearly one in four (23.9 percent) of physicians reported using full or partial electronic medical records (EMRs) in their office-based practice in 2005, a 31 percent increase from the 18.2 percent reported in 2001.

-- Physicians in the Midwest (26.9 percent) and West (33.4 percent) were more likely to use EMRs than those in the Northeast (14.4 percent).

-- Physicians in metropolitan statistical areas (nearly 24.8 percent) were more likely to use EMRs than were those in non-metropolitan areas (16.9).

-- Only one in 10 (9.3 percent) physicians, however, used EMRs with all four of the basic functions (computerized orders for prescriptions, computerized orders for tests, reporting of test results, and physician notes) considered necessary for a complete EMR system.

OSGi on Server on WAS

Since WAS 6.1 is starting to run on OSGi I was thinking about how would it be like to run the OHF Bridge on it...
Seems like Rich Piazza from IBM Rational had thought about it too. I.e. not about the OHF Bridge, but about calling eclipse plugins from a web service like the bridge does...
