  1. We began developing a platform over a year ago that could take the place of a standard form for web accessible ssl encrypted e-prescribing and EHR’s. Do you have any information on how the Obama Administration plans on getting this money into the hands of companies in this industry of healthcare technologies such as my company.

  2. Hey Chris,

  4. Hi Chris,

    Readers may be interested to know that we are holding an e-Health conference in Singapore on the 31st of July at the Fullerton Hotel.

    Our theme is ‘workflow solutions in e-Health’. If anyone will be in Singapore on that date we are looking out for one more Speaker
    with health informatics expertise.

    We are also researching relevant facts concerning the latest developments taking place that may improve the implementation of any aspect of e-Health. Particularly as this relates to ‘workflow’.

    Thanks for your help!


  5. Hi Chris,

    Just left an EpiSurveyor-related comment on one of your earlier stories about our work with polio in Kenya. If you haven’t looked at our http://www.episurveyor.org site recently, I highly recommend it: create a form, download to a phone, upload the data and automatically produce reports . . . in minutes. Some very cool stuff.
