The OSHCA Conference 2007 is shaping up to be the best and biggest yet. Presenters and participants are attending from around the globe.
The “daily schedule”:http://www.oshca.org/Members/twcook/oshca2007_Detailed-Program.pdf/view and the “abstracts”:http://www.oshca.org/Members/twcook/oshca2007_Abstracts.pdf/view are publically available on the OSHCA “web portal”:http://www.oshca.org/ . They are each updated daily prior to the Opening Session. Then only the Daily Schedule may be updated if required.
I plan to encourage one or more attendees to post their thoughts about the conference throughout the week on LMN.
C-SPAN covered a talk given at the New America Foundation promoting the new Best Care Anywhere. The panel featured the books author Phillip Longman as well as Kenneth W. Kizer, MD. No mention of the underground railroad that I could tell (corrections welcome).
You can download the video from CSPAN. Does anybody know how to get this video to play under GNU/Linux?
I have just completed a preliminary version of an (OpenEMR + CK-ERP) connector. A demo of CK-ERP operating within OpenEMR 2.8.2 is available here.

At the same time, it is important to note that,
Rick Marshall has begun a VistA blog with some good prose:
‘…In the beginning it had no name. Amazingly, those who fought their David-and-Goliath battle to bring VISTA to the world merely described it rather than naming it, almost unthinkable in this era of branding urges so powerful we had to coin the term “vaporware” for our empty software names. Instead, the fathers of VISTA offered us abundant anonymity, a wealth of medical informatics with no name…’
I’ve just set up an “Open HealthCare” LinkedIn.com group to facilitate networking between biz devs, boosters, coders, contributors, venture-types. If that’s of interest the invite link is here. Please feel encouraged to forward the invite url to anyone who might benefit. Thanks.
