Hi All,    (01)

It's in our neck of the woods, Peter, so it is convenient, and I am 
sure I will be fielding one or two proposals once I have had a chance 
to get my legs under me. I tried but was unable to get the right kind 
of telephone connection out of the hospital this morning in order to 
at least listen in on the forum, but it was also very hectic with 
discharge procedures.    (02)

I will try to take a look at it tomorrow. I just got out of the 
hospital after 5-day bout with pneumonia, and while I am MUCH better, 
things are backed up on my end of everything and it will take some 
sorting out and I probably need to pace myself better than I usually 
do. On the other hand, I don't have that many projects hanging fire 
or short deadlines right now, other than Resources Messaging, which 
will probably turn into a proposal to get double mileage out of the 
effort in the Emergency Management TC.    (03)

Speaking of resources, I actually learned some interesting things 
about said subject (and its sad subject side RE recent hurricanes in 
terms of both our EMTC hospital availability proposal and the 
availability and need for personnel resources such as traveling 
nurses, of whom I met several recently from those very regions caring 
for me).    (04)

Just in case you don't know, Alta Bates, Berkeley is a major node of 
Alta Bates/Summit here in Northern California, and while North 
Carolina has full EHR, California doesn't. My 3-day stay in ITC could 
easily have been cut down to 2 if not 18-hours as well giving me much 
better care and freeing up a bed due to bad intra-hospital messaging 
and personnel scheduling leading to overworked nurses passing 
handwritten messages which resulted in tests failing to actually be 
ordered by nurses when ordered by doctors, and then misordered. Plus 
short-handedness tends to push the wrong people into station and 
charge nurse positions. However, once out of that unit, I got better 
in a virtual snap!    (05)

It's GOOD to be back!
