Health records in a cube, an apple iPhone cube from the HL7 FiRH Argonaut project


This is the project that has my interest presently.

Your iPhone can become the health record cube of science fiction.

This is the vision of the apple health app. A place where google is not yet publicly competing.

Today I finally found the article about this secret apple project which might sometime involve Human using FiHR and EMR from multiple vendors.

Humana president visits Campbell office in San Jose likes the visuals he sees


Bruce spent two hours in Campell the other day.

I first ran into him as I step on the elevator to start my day he and Dave we’re going up to the fifth floor and I had a chance to give my thirty second elevator speech.

In his tour around the office a few hours later he was captivated by the visuals on the monitors in the support area.

The visuals were created by me to show the throughput and performance of our product.

It was nice to get recognized for that hard work.

I’ve not been at the fault line brewery for years.
