Disparate Application / Clinical Context Object Workgroup (CCOW) Standard Link Several Applications In Real Time - Tools Infobutton applied in health See next slide for application
CDSS Clinical Decision Support System Tools context and graph excerpt from materials HIM course
Clinical Guidelines comprise: Guideline Interchange Format (GLIF) [HL7]
– Guideline Elements Model (GEM) [ASTM]
• Disease Management Protocols
• Evidence-based Care Plans
The implementations are XML or URL to create the HL7 Infobutton as standard languages supported include RxNorm, LOINC, SNOMED CT and MeSH. The Compliant Context Manager then releases a HTML message. The URL can be automatically generated from the XML free text message. Here focus Infobuttons. This is in memory of a gentleman IT at WorldBank, who show Chris how to apply it into presentation messages. The core artifact of the Infobutton, Knowledge Request, is an information model (Refined Message Information Model, or simply RMIM) defines the structure and semantics of a context-aware knowledge request. Chris Ngo just wish to know script programming to create infobutton applicable anywhere, regardless the context. If you have the patience to read up to this point, here is a kudo for applying Infobuttons:

FORCEFIELD ANALYSIS ON CONSUMERISM IN HEALTH CARE Chris Ngo questions: consumerism impacts on physician work flow?
a. $ Profit -----------
b. Physician/dealer -----------
c. Incentives ----------- The transitional time frame of rapid technology change & telecommunication render cheaper goods/services since the 90’s
d. Market niche -----------
e. Conditions for PHR Integration ----------
f. Fair share of information ----------
Improve Quality, Safety, Efficiency, and Reduce Health Disparities, well, at the expenses of physicians times and efforts for free. There are ways for compensation, only when good will of the free world play down the communism/socialism card.
------------- a. Cost labor and capital (tech)
-------------b. Lack of functional roles (strategic communication/marketing representing physicians, introvert as they normally are)
------------- c. The ROI, returned investments (lack of payment, turn around profit not cover enough education & registration fees of professionals) Consider also the cost of education now and then, and the transitional time of tech changes.
-----------d. Absence of information. Uncertain market demands. Need for public sector and philanthropic investment to increase the information needed to allow the market to assess the merits of integrated PHRs.
-----------f. No Mediating Structure, conceptual idea, cultural barriers
---------f. 2011 Objectives Goal electronically capture in coded format and to report health information and to use that information to track key clinical conditions. Compliance with HIPAA privacy and security laws (All EMRAM Stages)

During the week of Data Set, bible reading coincides: ..."until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter of the law, not the smallest part of a letter shall be done away until it all comes true ---Mt5:18
Break down three types terminal digit, middle digit and straight numeric, that reading resonates under the morning stream lights through my window (sounds like ABBA song). Data values include: Accuracy, Accessibility, Comprehensiveness, Consistency, Timeliness, Definition, Granularity, Precision, Relevancy. In addition to the computer memory capture repetition, all facilitate the task of finding the shining data in a haystack.
From receiving data from the source at the patient encounter, data stream flows to the filer, the indexer, the coder, eventually serve secondary , tertiary users via mechanism such as physician index, the DRG groupers determine appropriate diagnosis related groups, the APC groupers helps the payment flow. Clinical coding nomenclature . abstracting data... Here are my real life experience with data quality, though not in health field.
1. In the 2000’s technology, Chris Ngo experienced volatile database. When SQL when run it too many times would make the database fields jump to the next field. Nowadays technology allows any database more consistent and user friendly, while diverse competitive software are tailored after specific and diverse needs. Communication between engineers & analysts ideally be frequent and openly honest to confirm each data
2. Stabled and well-maintained data consistency despite multiqueries attempts. As analyst back in 2000 at the INS DC headquarter, day in day out my database administrator and I, we constantly filtered bad data by checking the exponents, the comma, the numbers after the comma, purged them and replaced them with the exact numbers after concurred with the source local offices (150 total, each send over 1000 data every day). Here highlights the carpe diem (and nadir nightmare) of catching the right data in the haystack.
3. Data warehousing, a storage integrating data from mega data sources; the selected, filtered query using SQL, information from each source after being extracted cleaned, translated and filtered, further interpreted into concepts. Data growth began with glossary, data dictionary, then data documentation of the progress of the software deployment within the team unit, struck like a classical high note!
4. OLAP and DSS applications: The On-Line Analytical Processing (OLAP) and the Decision Support System (DSS) applications depends on heavy use of granulate data, complex queries, normally seen in security systems, credit card, employment background checks. In 2005 exposed to IBM SAP, OLAP, Project 2003 while aggregates economic data at the World Bank, drilling through three economic levels of the world. Pivot Excel 2007, plot range name, twist from the vertical database into horizontal Excel table, quite cumbersome! Pivot Excel 2008 Microsoft programming simplified users’task.
Mnemonic plays a main part of data interchange standard, for the convenient and practical use of alphabet as symbol of the whole idea. Here are some techniques that Chris Ngo expanded from Mnemonic Techniques and Specific Memory http://brain.web-us.com/
When did mnemonic science started? How the brain responses to mnemonic stimuli? These were the unanswered questions the time when I was analyst for the INS back in 2000. The biggest part of the job (and of the database administrator as well) is data entry. Key in repeatedly and visual recognition of the sets of data using mnemonic peg system help us to recognize abnormal or bad data sets, identify them and analyze causal relationships (Herman Ebbinghaus concept of memory learning maximizing recall retention method). Coder for the Patent and Trademark in 2003, I interfaced with senseless codes, sound Greek to me until now reading the Messaging Standard of HL7. There was a time when as a temp for the World Wild Life Fund, I assisted the technician in translating semantic language into natural language for the mapping of queries. We babbled complex ideas of scientists abroad and simplified into concepts and symbols. It was quite an interesting line of work.
ACRONYMS . The academic explanation sounds scientific, yet in American daily life is embedded with “SNAFFU”, “ASAP”, “WWJD” , usw…
SENTENCES/ACROSTICS Do Not Throw Pizza Away Data link, Network, Transport, Presentation, Application layers, computer components
METHOD OF LOCI walk the walk, talk the talk. Think of step backward when remembering a lost object. Define and locate “respect” vs. vanity, Tea Party! Would material wealth define a nation third world ranking? No, respect is what granted by the counterpart, one cannot “demand”, but prove. Latest distortion on budget cut: the core truth is to target vulnerable women minorities. The purpose is to soothe ego, class struggle and economic discrimination, is nothing related to national debts!
CHUNKING NUMBERS long series of numbers broken down into triplets make easier to memorize the whole set of data—number crunching
RHYMES & SONGS Finding data in the haystack, i.e.:Twinkle twinkle little star applied to memorize a quadratic formula Asia took 15% HL7 membership. Japan culture contributes to the art of conceptualization, I assume, stem from Basho Haiku, a condensed poetry.
Here is one of Basho well known poem in Haiku form:
Old pond leap - splash a frog
In an old pond, quiet, mossy, where the poet is sitting and meditating, probably for hours. Suddenly a frog leaps, creating a sound, an echo, a mirror, circles of waves. Eventually, sounds, images and activities around go back to normal after times. Double meaning of trouble maker leaves behind a chaos for a moment, then every thing goes back to normal. Behind the scene is probably a warrior in peace time cannot use his sword, ends up sitting duck “jobless” for a long time. Now and then there would be some “revolutionary” but nothing can change easily in a closed traditional hierarchical society. So many ideas sum up into 6 words!
Ah, summer grasses! All that remains Of the warriors dreams.
Kate & William: “Oh, Wow!” When a kiss is not just a kiss, the anthropic principle
Even if the constants of nature were slightly uneven, it would not have been life created. Full symmetry is recreated when two or three broken symmetries are combined. Chris Ngo hobby sculpture, here is Nido D’Amore , a search for geometric (and soul) balance.

Your difficulty in matching jobs with applicants: what is the role of employment centers other than their own job and profiling women minorities supported by global directives?
What can you do with databases of résumé and how to pick the right person to the right job?
Why the hired turn out to be different than the ones you interviewed? Misconception and distorted views
Analysis and Solutions
Repetitive manual works, sports or hobbies
Faith as a cure: Σ=mc 2
less material, more spiritual gain, focus on others.
The past world upheavals, the déclassé as a result. The distorted view of “America land of the braves” favor the daring to do dirty works, yet can’t do the job, while vast talents unused.
Consider the current alignment within global cascade designs, the passion of social climbers and the fear of job and resources scarcity. Strangely, this situation was not shown ubiquitously in the ’90s. The implication: less democracy, less quality of life not based on wealth. Brutality in work place still persists even clearer as ever.
Evaluate a person as they really are, and not based on credit history (social discrepancies, systems’ cracks, out dated conceptions, shrew global finance power).
Latest misconception Tea Party budget cut: the insecures, the low self-esteems behind invisible networks are confused class struggles and economic discrimination with national debts!
