Actually, it has been crazy busy for me for more than a week, its 2 weeks actually!
I attended the 2nd EHR Asia Conference on the 23-24th Nov 2010 where I caught up with quite a few friends from around the region.
Then I attended the Health Informatics Technical Committee on the 25th (that sets the Health IT standards for Singapore, pretty cool) followed by the HL7 Singapore Communication Sub-Committee where I am chairperson.
On the 26th, I gave a lecture on Hospital Information Systems for Parkway College Singapore to delegates from Vietnam as part of a 5day Healthcare Management Program.
On the 28th Nov, I flew to Mumbai, India and stay here for business before flying to New Delhi, India on the 3rd Dec and deliver a lecture on Medical Imaging Informatics (including Vendor Neutral Archive) on the 4th Dec before flying back to Singapore on the 5th Dec 2010.
All these while maintaining the commitment of my day job (someone has to pay the bills) and boy am I deadbeat! (I also completed an interview and warp up another whitepaper which I will upload tomorrow).
There is so much to share with you readers but in short, I’m glad I did all of the above (although my family time got seriously affected so I am trying to make it up now) because there is so much to be done in the Asia region! The hunger for knowledge is clearly evident yet the information is not made readily available.
I am hoping to develop more materials and expediting the second book I am working on (on Vendor Neutral Archive). I have also received some speaking invitations which I will try to accommodated into my schedule.
Stay tune for more folks, in the meantime, these are the slides I presented for the Napier India Medical Imaging Informatics Symposium 2010.
