Mon Nov 17 02:39:13 EST 2008
When: Tuesday 25th November from 5:30 for a 5:45ish start
Title: Tracking Patients: redesigning patient tracking in a busy
Speaker: Alan Boldock, Senior Analyst Programmer, Royal Adelaide
Where: Centrelink Useability Centre, Level 1 South side, 191 Pulteney
St, Adelaide (corner Pulteney and Flinders Sts) I know there were some
issues with access last month - we are working to fix that...
Parking: There is a lot of parking either on Pulteney and Flinders St or
in Hindmarsh SQ
- its metered but generally only until 6pm (so not much
money) and frees up at the right time :-)
Format: is intended to be fairly informal: drinks and nibbles on arrival
Presentation from about 5:45 followed by a discussion
Finally networking, more drinks and nibbles and dinner for
those who want to continue discussions
RSVP: to Karen.hughes at saabsystems.com.au (just so I have some idea on
quantity of nibbles to organise and how many to book for dinner). If you
don't remember to RSVP you are still most welcome :-)
Food and nibbles: gold coin donation to cover costs or if you are able
to assist in providing food or nibbles this month please let me know in
Dinner after the meeting: For those who are interested a table will be
booked at Caffe Amore <http://www.cafeamore.com.au/home.php> (across
Pulteney St), please indicate in your RSVP if you would like to come to
dinner afterwards and continue discussions (please indicate if a partner
or friend will be joining you for dinner).
The team is primarily responsible for the development and maintenance of
user databases. This includes many ASP .NET web application as well as
Microsoft Access and SQL Server databases.
One of our most recent projects required developing a system to track
patients as they are treated in the RAH pre-anaesthetic clinic. What was
originally suggested was not what they got! The final application uses
WPF, ASP.NET as well as touch-screen technologies and RFID to solve the
problem. This talk outlines how the project was presented, the problems
that arose, the solutions we developed, and how the system is used.
Alan Boldock is a Senior Analyst Programmer and manager of a small
development team working within the Central Northern Adelaide Health
Service (CNAHS) at the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH).
December Meeting details: maybe 16th Dec for dinner rather than a
