Using the Latest Advances in Data Science to Fight Infectious Diseases

One of the most dramatic shifts in recent years that is empowering epidemiologists to be more effective at their jobs is occurring because of improvements in data technologies. In the past, the old “relational” data model dictated that data had to be highly structured, and as a result treated in distinct silos. This made it difficult, if not impossible to analyze data from multiple sources to find correlations. Epidemiologists would have to spend many minutes or even hours on each query they ran to get results back, which is unacceptable when you need to test dozens of hypotheses to try to understand and contain a fast-moving outbreak. (Imagine how you would feel if each one of your Google searches took 45 minutes to return!) By contrast, using newer technologies, the same queries on the same hardware can run in seconds.

Project Hilleman - Moving VistA Forward.

Event Details
Type: 
Seminar/Webinar
Date: 
May 17, 2016 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm

What is "Project Hilleman"? The technical answer is: Project Hilleman is meaningful web services for refactoring VistA. The core principles are 1) decoupling the business rules from the data 2) performance 3) and easy-to-follow strategies and design patterns for refactoring legacy VistA code. The more interesting (and provocative) reply is that we at Bitscopic believe the VistA status quo isn't working and hasn't been for a while. Google "Congress VA VistA." It isn't hard to find evidence that many of our elected officials see VistA as a relic and are setting the stage for its replacement. It's happening no matter how much the VistA Community wants to believe otherwise.
