March 3rd, 2013 — HealthVault
HIMSS 2011 was my first big healthcare industry conference. The trade show is one of a kind and the largest gathering of folks interested in HealthCare IT in United States. In 2012, I attended the conference virtually and this year I’m back on the show floor. This is a coming out event for the product I have been working on at Optum – Optum Direct! Optum Direct is a secure messaging platform built on the ONC sponsored Direct Standard. If you want to know more, stop by our booth #7041 on the show floor I would love to show it in action. Additionally, our early adopter customer Santa Cruz HIE & Physicians Medical Group is showcasing this product with connectivity to Microsoft HealthVault and others in the interoperability showcase.
Having said above, among a plethora of sessions and events I’m looking forward to following events at the conference -
- Interoperability Showcase : A real-life standards play in action!
- Brian Ahier’s – Developing Trust in the Health Internet as a Platform
- ONC’s HIE Seminar
- Exhibit Show floor buzzed with words like – ICD-10, Meaningful Use, ACO, etc.
Editor of my book – Programmable Self with HealthVault, Andy Oram will be covering the conference along with others for O’Reilly. Brian Ahier has a good preview of the coverage.
If you are at the conference or are virtual (@ #HIMSS13) please drop me a note as I would love to connect!
June 19th, 2012 — HealthVault, quantified-self
Dear Reader –
Apologies I have been a bit on blogging hiatus! Among other things, I recently released my book on HealthVault, Enabling Programmable Self with HealthVault.
Quantified Self blog covered the book and the story behind it in its toolmaker talk series. Over next few weeks I’m hoping to post about a number of topics including Restful Health Exchange, NwHIN Governance, FHIR, HealthVault mobile applications and I’ll also be updating the compendium website for the book – www.enablingprogrammableself.com.
Please let me know in comments if you have suggestions for me to write about.
P.S. – I also moved on from Microsoft and I’m active in healthcare and technology community travelling frequently between Seattle, Bay Area and sometimes Minnesota.

Heart of the ruby on rails magic in creating a very expressive and eloquent web development framework is the use of ruby’s method_missing.
Following is an example of method_missing in action :
