I am a Standards and Interoperability Architect in the Healthcare IT industry currently working for Ready Computing. Since 2007 I have had the opportunity to study the current and future states of interoperability as it relates to patient care, participating both in the development of various healthcare standards and implementation guidance activities as well as implementation of those standards in HIT products that care providers and patients are still using today.
I am also a family man and an avid Toyota Land Cruiser enthusiast. My wife of 10 years and I live with our 4 children, born 2004, 2007, 2009 and 2011 just outside of Nashville, TN. I own a 1995 Land Cruiser that I am constantly planning or working on an upgrade for. My goal is to explore various back country corners of the US with some or all of my family in tow.
The purpose of this blog is to serve as an outlet for my thoughts and on various activities in my life. I will mostly cover HIT related topics but will occasionally deviate into other thoughts.
